REVIEW: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher

Nobody wants to talk about suicide.

But Hannah Baker does. She simply wanted someone to listen. To her story, her life, her problems.

No one did.

The stigma attached to suicide keeps it from being talked about. That is why only a handful know pathophysiology of a suicide. and yes, it includes those who've done it.

This novel is just simply beautiful and devastating. Eerie. It gave me chills as I turned the pages. Partly, because the suspense was building up and the exchange between Hannah's narrative and Clay's thoughts engages me in the story, but mostly it's because I've been in those shoes before.

Nobody understands.Everything leads to everything. The snowball just keeps on getting bigger and bigger (thus, the snowball effect). Those petty little things people do to you but generally ignore can have deadly results. Literally.

Though not all endings are happy, it depends on your standards, but this novel gives hope. Hope that there's a way we can help.
