Review for 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher

You can’t stop the future. You can’t rewind the past.
The only way to learn the secret . . . is to press play.
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 as he follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his town, what he discovers changes his life forever.

My 5 Star Review

I will be honest and tell you that I had no desire to read this book.

I really wanted to watch it on Netflix.

But then my son's principle sent out and email asking parents to read this book. Because some students might be reading it this next school year and or also watching this on Netflix.

Now I knew my son would read it because he will be a sophomore this next year. So I did what every parent would do and my husband went out and bought the book.

So I am 35 years old and this book put me in my place. The main character ripped through my chest and looked inside my heart of hearts.

After every cassette I had to stop and reflect on my past. Did I say or do something that made someone have these kind of thoughts?

This book broke my heart and the last tape....

That ripped my heart the pieces!

The fact that one last person could of saved her and instead he said to just let it go and move on.

I wanted to jump inside my book and whoop his *ss.
