Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker - his classmate and crush - who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah's voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out why. Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah's pain, and learns the truth about himself-a truth he never wanted to face.

Thirteen Reasons Why is the gripping, addictive international bestseller that has changed lives the world over. It's an unrelenting modern classic.

      WOW. A truly heartbreaking story, but beautifully written and extremely engaging. Read with caution though, as it is quite emotion heavy. LOVED IT!!

        A book that speaks the truth about what so many of us go through every day. Asher has put in words what i cannot even vocalize about my own emotions. Brilliant, a must read!
