Thirteen Reasons Why is a novel written by Jay Asher and published in 2007.
The story begins as a teenage boy named Clay Jensen comes back home after school and finds a package, in this box are 7 cassette tapes and 13 stories recorded by Hannah Baker, a classmate but also someone close to Clay, who recently committed suicide. Hannah was bullied at school because various people would start rumours about her and they would end up being known by everyone, all these various people are on the tapes. Each cassette contains a recording of Hannah’s voice exposing one of the person who made her end her life. On the first tape, Hannah tells her listeners that she holds each of them responsible for her death, and that the tapes will explain why. After listening, each person must give the tapes to the next person on the list, that next person was now Clay.
This book it truly amazing and I think that nowadays it’s really important to raise awareness about the people who are bullied because, even though this book is fictional, some teenagers did commit suicide because they were bullied in real life.
