Summary: Clay has just received cassettes that tell the story of his used-to-be crush’s life, Hannah, who committed suicide. She explains her thirteen reasons to end her life and Clay (as well as the other 12 people) have to hear them. Throughout the stories, the 13 people will learn what really happened and everything Hannah has been through.

My Thoughts:
Hannah was amazingly well written. I understood everything she said. Clay got kind of annoying because he kept thinking in his mind as he was hearing the tapes. The ending is good. Mr. Porter made me angry, what kind of counselor speaks like that? It was intriguing. It got more and more serious as the book went on because at first I was like why would you kill yourself for that? I liked how everything was interconnected (if this happens, then it causes this). It was a great book. Go read it now!
