Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Hannah Baker killed herself but before she died she sent out tapes to thirteen people telling of how their interactions with her led to her demise.

Clay liked Hannah and when he recieves the tapes he is shocked and saddened.  He soon dives into the complicated people around him and how Hannah was negatively impacted by their actions amd how maybe just.. maybe he could of saved her.

 

This book is absolutely terrible.  We learn nothing of the main character ,Clay, except that he has a garage, his mom likes milkshakes, and he learns how to ride the bus.  Hannah turns out to be a selfish girl who sends out tapes for revenge.  In the end we hate all the characters and never ever want to read this book again.

I would not suggest reading this and I sincerely hope this helped.
