Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
*Spoiler Alert* – This review may contain some spoilers.
I found this a good read as it had a really engaging plot line. It all revolved around a girl who committed suicide and left behind cassette tapes, one for each person who had spread nasty rumours about her or stripped her of her dignity.
Although it was a good idea to start off with, I felt it dragged on a bit and I did not particularly like the ending as I felt, for me, that the book never really climaxed. I felt more could have been done with the idea and that the effects of what had happened to the main characters could have been more clearly portrayed.
However, I would still recommend this book as it explored important and current issues in our society. It also helped to illustrate to the reader how even small things can make a significant difference to people’s mind-sets and lives.
