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 several 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."

I liked this book, I really did..however it seemed a bit.....boring near the middle. I know even the best books have boring parts...but I would probably read this book agian later on.
I really like the concept of the story..the girl leaves tapes with 13 reasons why she commited suicide. I honestly read this book, because one of my friends read it last year and couldn't put it down. I however, didn't have that problem. Agian this is a good book, but not fantastic.
So this book gets 3.5/5...I do recommend this book to anyone!
