Clay Jensen doesn’t want anything to do with the tapes Hannah Baker made. Hannah is dead. Her secrets should be buried with her. Then Hannah’s voice tells Clay that his name is on the tapes – and that he is, in some way, responsible for her death. All through the night, Clay keeps listening. He follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his small town … and what he discovers changes his life forever.
At first, this story seemed to raise more questions than provide answers. How could all of the situations described lead to someone’s death? I didn’t understand it. But the more I thought about it, the clearer it became. It wasn’t the situations themselves that lead to Hannah’s death, it was how they were perceived. Something might seem harmless and fun when it could actually be hurting someone.
The suspense in this novel made it almost impossible to put down.
