Thirteen reasons why – Jay Asher

Clay Jensen is surprised to receive a mysterious package in the post. He is even more confused when he plays the tape enclosed in it and hears the voice of his class mate who commited suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah, his class mate, has sent her story to the thirteen people who led her to this action, asserting “everything affects everything”; somehow, Clay is implicated in her death. Most of the story focuses on Clay listening to the tape, and Hannah’s story is both heart-wrenching and compelling – with an important message about how people are affected by even the smallest of our actions.
