From the Publisher
Editors Note When high school student Clay Jenkins receives a box in the mail containing thirteen cassette tapes recorded by his classmate Hannah, who committed suicide, he spends a bewildering and heartbreaking night crisscrossing their town, listening to Hannah's voice recounting the events leading up to her death.
Annotation Why did Hannah Baker commit suicide? What were the reasons, and the people, that made her think she had no options left? When high-school student Clay Jenkins receives a box of audio tapes, he discovers that they contain Hannah's explanation for her death, with copies sent to the 13 people who she felt drove her to the act. Clay had always had a crush on Hannah, and even worked with her at a movie theater--how could he be one of the people responsible? THIRTEEN REASONS WHY, written through a mix of Clay's thoughts and Hannah's voice, is a deeply compelling tale of teenage trauma and angst, with the page-turning pace of a psychological thriller. Jay Asher, the author of the surprise New York Times Bestseller, has a wonderful ear for the voices and suffering of his young protagonists, and is equally skilled at portraying both male and female minds.
