After being bullied on Social Media, I downloaded this book per a recommendation of a fellow YouTube blogger. It is a little dark and a little difficult to read at times, but overall it is a good book. It is definitely meant for the younger generations as the writing itself is very "young". But it definitely makes you start to think that anything and everything you do in your daily life can and will impact someone. You never know what someone is going through and that reminds me to always smile when I look someone in the eyes. I gave it 4 stars because I think that the story itself can put off the wrong message if you read into it too deeply and start thinking about suicide, but, the overall message that I took from it is a good one. I think this would make a great movie someday!
All parents of teenagers should listen to this. Specially if you are not familiarized with teen suicide warnings. This audiobook should be mandatory in every highschool! The story is compeling and extremely rich in topics for family discussions and the amazing narration with keep everyone paying attention. Thank you for writing this book...
Gripping, thought provoking.
I am sure I am not alone in this but it is Clay Jensen. How can you not feel for this young man. Thrown into the thirteen reasons and listening to the heartache of a girl he cared for. Very sad indeed.
Clayton and his friend in the car. I don't want to give any of the story away, but that was very touching.
I would have loved to.
After I read this book I thought for a while if what Hannah did was selfish. She was gone and yes she hurt and was angry but those tapes would have changed people. Some deserved to know but others in the chain were not as culpable as Hannah thought.
This was my first time listening to a book. Generally I read through my Nook or purchase through bookstores. But being so busy I knew I wouldn't have time to read it, so I found that this might be convenient and a great way to get into the books I've been wanting to read. My best friend and I both did this together and found it to be super fun! I was little worried about the voice acting but they were good. I'll definitely be looking for more books ☺️ - This story was heart tugging and makes you think about your actions and how it affects people. It reminds you that kindness can go a long way for someone's life. Enjoyed it! 🙌🏼
