TH1RTEEN R3ASONS WHY by Jay Asher
Hannah Baker committed suicide. Everyone knows about the pill overdose that took her frail life away. But not everyone knew the reason behind her irrational action. And Clay Jensen, is lucky enough (unlucky I suppose) to discover the reasons and events that led Hannah to take her dear life.
One fateful morning Clay discovers a package sitting on their doorstep. He then opens the package and sees its contents: seven cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker herself. Curiosity took over the guy and played the first tape from the box. From that moment Clay Jensen will soon discover the people responsible for Hannah’s death which includes his involvement in the girl’s untimely demise.
From one simple misunderstanding leading to another untoward incident which eventually led Hannah to succumb the inevitable snowball effect.
TRW is a moving and compelling book that will leave you reevaluating the things you’ve done in the past. It will definitely change your life, if not straighten the path you’ve already taken.
I learned that a simple act of kindness can have a huge impact to someone and sadly a simple misconception can shatter one’s life.
"No one knows for certain how much impact they have on the lives of other people."
Written by Jay Asher, TH1RTEEN R3ASONS WHY is also the recipient of 2007 New York Times best-selling young-adult fiction.
