A book is like a baby. . .it doesn't matter how ugly it is,
the mom/writer is still going to love it.

You won't find snarky reviews here.

What you'll find in this blog are books that teens
who hate reading are reading. . .and liking.

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Why would beautiful Hannah Baker kill herself? And why has Clay Jensen gotten a package of cassette tapes addressed to the people who had a part in Hannah's life and death?  When Clay gets the "package" he is warned to listen to the tapes and follow the map that explains why Hannah Baker decided that life wasn't worth living or risk having his part in her death exposed to everyone in their small town.  The story told in her own words make him both thoughtful and sand.  Could he have changed her mind?
