    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 explains that there are 13 reasons she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out why.

    Story
    Where does Thirteen Reasons Why rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the top for me, especially since the format of the book has Clay, the MC, listening to Hannah's tapes. I felt like I was having the experience with Clay, and I loved both of the actors performing the text.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This an important book to read for anyone who has a teen/teens in their life. I was a teen once (and only once, thank goodness), but I’ve spent the past eleven years working in a high school. The difference is that now, as an adult, I can look back on all that made me miserable in my teen years and know that there is so much more to life than the volatile ecosystem that is the American high school. Many adults expect teens to just get this, but how can they? They have not lived beyond this experience yet, and without a guarantee that life will get better, some teens make the same decision that Hannah makes.


    What about Debra Wiseman and Joel Johnstone ’s performance did you like?

    They simply were Clay and Hannah. That's all there is to it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Everything affects everything.

    Don't miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, soon to be a major motion picture, in theaters August 2013. Danger intensifies for the Shadowhunters as the New York Times best-selling Infernal Devices trilogy comes to a close. If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it? The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose. Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment. Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the final installment of the best-selling Infernal Devices trilogy.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Clockwork Princess again? Why?

    Yes. I am already. The story. Oh my god, the story! Cassandra Clare has outdone herself, and Daniel Sharman narration is as perfect as the story. He is Will. He is Jem. And because of the impeccable realness he brings to these characters, I'm even more devastated to be done with this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Clockwork Princess?

    THE EPILOGUE!!!! My eyes well up just thinking about it. To read it is to choke back sobs (all in a good way).


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The cave scene in Cadair Idris.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    YES! I did laugh quite a bit. Gideon and Gabriel Lightwood are great comic relief among the heaviness that is the main story here. I sobbed at the end. Flat out sobbed.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my favorite book of the trilogy, my favorite trilogy in general. And Daniel Sharman, thank you for bringing my favorite Shadowhunters so beautifully to life.
