Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
High school student Clay Jensen finds a map in his locker from Hannah Baker, a girl he likes, one day. He stuffs it in his backpack not sure what to make of it. Then a few weeks after Hannah commits suicide, Clay receives a shoe box with no return address full of cassette tapes. The tapes are Hannah's voice outlining the thirteen reasons why she killed herself. As Clay listens, he follows the corresponding map.
I loved this book. Some students were reading it and passing it around and kept saying how good it was so I grabbed it from the library. I will definitely look for more from this author.
