I hate Hannah Baker. I don't find her 13 reasons quite reasonable for her to take her life. And I think the main topic of this novel, suicide, is quite alarming for a YA read. If you'll ask me, I won't recommend this book to age brackets who can still easily get influenced by what they read. It's scary to think that some kids may opt to kill themselves with the same reasons Hannah Baker have.

But her story does teaches us not to take other people for granted, or else it would be too late. Small acts of kindness are deeply appreciated and even well-remembered.

Quotes Jhecca Liked

Jay Asher
“You don’t know what goes on in anyone’s life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can’t be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life. Everything. . . affects everything.”
Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why

“No one knows for certain how much impact they have on the lives of other people. Oftentimes, we have no clue. Yet we push it just the same.”
Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why

“Soul Alone by Hannah Baker

I meet your eyes
you don't even see me
You hardly respond
when I whisper
Could be my soul mate
two kindred spirits
Maybe we're not
I guess we'll never

My own mother
you carried me in you
Now you see nothing
but what I wear
People ask you
how I'm doing
You smile and nod
don't let it end

Put me
underneath God's sky and
know me
don't just see me with your eyes
Take away
this mask of flesh and bone and
See me
for my soul

“If my love were an ocean,
there would be no more land.
If my love were a desert,
you would see only sand.
If my love were a star-
late at night, only light.
And if my love could grow wings,
I'd be soaring in flight.”
Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why

“You can't go back to how things were. How you thought they were. All you really have is...now.”

“It's hard to be disappointed when what you expected turns out to be true.”
