Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers thirteen cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate and crush who committed suicide two weeks earlier.

On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out how he made the list.

Through Hannah and Clay's dual narratives, debut author Jay Asher weaves an intricate and heartrending story of confusion and desperation that will deeply affect teen readers.

I'm quite excited about this one. :)

The only other book i've read, where the main focus is on the suicide is Dying To Forget Which i enjoyed.

The blurb reminds me of 34 Pieces of You by Carmen Rodrigues which I thought I would hate, but actually ended up loving ♡

50% - Kind of bored now. I thought as she got further up the list, what people done would get worse, but they haven't really.
