Thirteen Reasons Why

I have recently read a book called Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. This book is about a girl who committed suicide, but before she did, she recorded tapes and sent them out to the thirteen people whom she blames for her decision to take her own life. I think that this book really opens your eyes to bulling and makes you realize the impact you have on the lives of others, whether you realize it or not. For example, you may think that you are just joking around with someone, but they may take that seriously, and it might even affect them down to their very core. The reason for this is that people come from very different backgrounds, like maybe they have a lot of family problems (like myself), and they are unhappy with life, they may be in a very vulnerable state and if people were to pick on them, they may feel as though they have no one, and when they feel like that, they feel trapped, as though the pain will never get better because as humans, we are very short-sighted and we may not see that there is even a way out of the situation. And that is when people may begin to consider suicide, because they do not see their situation getting any better and they view suicide as the only way out. And this story follows Clay Jensen who is trying to find where he fits in all of it, and as we follow Clay on his journey, we get to see the factors which pushed Hannah Baker to commit suicide. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, as it will show you that little acts of kindness can and will go a long way, and it might even inspire you to help others as much as you can, and even teach others of the impact that they have on the lives of others.
