Thirteen Reasons Why: The Book by Jay Asher

Have you seen Thirteen Reasons Why the Netflix series?


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.
