(Goodreads Synopsis)
Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package 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. Hannah's voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out why. Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah's pain, and learns the truth about himself-a truth he never wanted to face.

     Such a powerful read! I really loved the plot but the writing could have been a bit better, it was confusing to read because it switched a lot from Hannah talking to Clay talking, and you forget who is who while reading. But, I got used to it about halfway through. 

      The best part of the story was definitely the characters. They all had there own personalities, which was interesting and fun. I could really connect and relate with them while reading. Also, when you forget about a previous character in the book, they pop up again in another chapter. In the end, it was so interesting to see how all the characters were connected.
         Another thing I really liked was the setting. There was really nothing great about it, and that's what I liked. No crazy back story, or unusual things that happen in it, just your  average american town.

     Mostly everything in this book was AMAZING.
