705 Words3 Pages
The author of this book is Jay Asher. The name of this book is thirteen reasons why. This book is about a girl who has committed suicide and has sent out a tape that will be given to thirteen people explaining how they were all a part in her suicide. This book is narrated by Clay Jensen. My favorite part in this book is when Hannah Baker is talking about a rumor that that was started about her. The reason why it’s my favorite is because she is so accurate in what she says. What she says is, “A rumor started a reputation that other people believed in and reacted to.

Hannah gave out maps along with the tapes so that they can follow her story, by going to the places where she had some of her worst memories. The town they live in is called Crestmont. Throughout the book Clay goes to all of the places on the map. My favorite place in this book is Rosie’s Diner. It’s my favorite place in this book because that’s where Hannah had not only bad memories, but also happy ones. It’s also one of my favorite places in this book it’s where all the kids would go to hang out and drink milkshakes. It just seems so cute and cliché to me. All the characters in this book have it pretty bad because they have to live with the fact that they were one of the reasons a girl has
