This is a story about the thirteen tapes that Hannah Baker recorded, before she committed suicide. It all starts when Clay Jenson finds an anonymous package at his front door. Little does he know, that in this package is a shoe box that contains the tapes that Hannah Baker left behind. After hearing Hannah mention the people who receive this box are the reasons why she killed herself, Clay’s world starts to crumble. He is shocked and devastated that he was one of the reasons why the girl he loves killed herself. The only times he actually talked to her was at work, never at school. Except, that one time at the party. Will Clay listen to the tapes, and find out what he did to make Hannah swallow the pills, or will he throw the tapes out, and risk a public set of them being released?
This book is set in the present and is set in a small town which name is not mentioned
I thoroughly enjoyed the casual writing style. It made it easy to understand and I felt like it was more realistic.
This book was written in Clay’s perspective (First person narrative) and is set in a small town in a stereotypical high school. This book was very well written. The characters were well developed and you could really feel every emotion the characters had. This book was slowly paced but the suspense kept me on my toes, and made me want to keep reading. The ending left me in tears, and I was devastated that it was over. Although it was strange reading a book where you already know the ending, I enjoyed every bit of it. If you like reading sad romance novels, I would recommend this for you. Due to coarse language and an inappropriate subject matter, I would only recommend this book to teens 14 and up. Overall, this book was exciting, suspenseful, and an amazing read.
