THIRTEEN REASONS WHY
by Jay Asher

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Young Adult

RT Rating

Debut author Asher takes a sensitive topic - teen suicide - and doesn't back down. His tale is engaging and the payoff's worth it, though terribly sad.

Clay Jensen's an all-around good guy. So why did he receive a box full of audiotapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate and crush who committed suicide two weeks earlier, naming him as one of the 13 people responsible for her death? Clay will have to find the courage, and a Walkman, to listen to Hannah's story and try to understand. (RAZORBILL, Oct., 304 pp., $16.99, ISBN: 9781595141712, 12 and Up, HC)
