Thirteen Reasons Why: The Book by Jay Asher - Alejandra's Life

Thirteen Reasons Why: The Book by Jay Asher

September 12, 2017

Have you seen Thirteen Reasons Why the Netflix series?

Plot:

You can’t stop the future. You can’t rewind the past. The only way to learn the secret . . . is to press play.

Clay Jensen returns home from school one day to find a mysterious box with his name on it, outside his front door. Inside he discovers a series of cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker – his classmate and crush. Only, she committed suicide two weeks earlier.

On the first tape, Hannah explains that there are 13 reasons why she did what she did – and Clay is one of them.
If he listens, Clay will find out how he made the list – what he hears will change his life forever.

My 2 pence:

Did you know it is actually a book?

I wanted to write about the series for a long time, and now I bring you the actual book in which the series was inspired.

I really recommend everyone to see the series, parents, teenagers, bullies or someone that experiences what is written in this book/tv series.

As a parent, I have to admit I didnt had these kind of things back in my school, and I was in fact a popular girl but i always looked out for the “new people”, organized parties for everyone. I know that for other people High school was pretty much awful, for me it wasn’t at all, one of the best times ever.

Now as a parent, this tv series showed me what can go wrong in high schools nowadays and how different it become and I really felt afraid for my little RJ, but I think every parent would feel like me.

I really recommend the book and the tv series.

I cried a lot in some parts, since maybe there can be friends that don’t ask for help and can harm themselves as you don’t notice. I’ve lost 1 dear friend like that, and still today I feel guilty (without being guilty of her choice), but you will always think about: What could I have done and have I missed.

So pick up your good old Walkman and listen to this. (read the book and you will know what I am talking about).

And Remember: there is ALWAYS someone that loved you. Always.
