All I can say is WOW. This story had me from the beginning. Thirteen Reasons Why is about a high school student named Hannah who commits suicide. She claims to have thirteen reasons why she killed herself and she records herself explaining the reasons to the thirteen different people whom she blames. Clay happens to be one of them. The story is told from Clay’s point of view. Although his role in her death is not as significant as many of the others, he still feels the weight of guilt on his shoulders. Just to think, he could have prevented it.

Reading this book will take you on a heart wrenching journey. At multiple times throughout the story,¬†you will find yourself wanting to jump into the story and save her yourself. As you discover the signs of suicide victims and hear some of the thoughts that go through Hannah’s head, all you will want to do while reading this book is be there to stop her.

I encourage everyone to read this book. In addition to getting a great read, people also learn how to distinguish a cry for help from a cry for attention. This book is helpful to suicide victims and their friends alike. You never want to be put in the situation where you could have stopped it from happening. You never want to be the reason why.
