Review : 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers thirteen cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate and crush who committed suicide two weeks earlier.
On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out how he made the list.
Through Hannah and Clay's dual narratives, debut author Jay Asher weaves an intricate and heartrending story of confusion and desperation that will deeply affect teen readers. -goodreads

The story is about a girl named Hannah Baker. She's a new girl in town. Her life had been good until someday she found her name in a list made by her friend. Practically the list was just a joke, just like what teenagers do in school but that list changed Hannah Baker's life in a very unexpected way. Everything in her life was turn bad ever since, until when she thought to committed suicide. That was just a thought at first of course. Before she was sure to did it, she just wanted her life to be more miserable. She did a thing that ruined her life and she had to be sure that no one can help her to recover. After that, she ended her life.

This is such a depressed book to read. I've never read this kind of book before. If you or someone you know are not in a good mood or in depression mode, DON'T read this book! Yes, it can effect you. If you ever read this book just be sure that it's just a story and don't see life through Hannah Baker's point of view. There are always a way out from all the problems in life.

Some lessons I've learned from this book are the way we treat other people is actually effect them. People around us are all the same, no matter how strong they look outside, they are all fragile inside. Overall this book is a good book in its' own way. It has a negative energy, but there are some positive lessons too. I give this book 4/5
