Hi readers:


Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker—his classmate and crush—who committed suicide two weeks earlier.

On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out how he made the list.

The books has to different POVs. Why that confused me you may ask? Well the book is written like this:

I was in the party drinking and having fun.
I´m walking in the park then I almost fell.

I was like; What! Weren´t you in the party! But then I realized that every sentence is one different POV or every paragraph, so that confused a lot. And the worst of the things is that you have to figure out who is really talking.
