“No one knows for certain how much impact they have on the lives of other people. Oftentimes, we have no clue. Yet we push it just the same.”

This book follows the story of Hannah baker. Two weeks before she committed suicide, she sent out a box full of seven cassette tapes to some people in her school, who mistreated her, or spread false rumors about her. Hanna’s voice explains thirteen reasons why she killed herself. Each tape exposes a secret. One day, Clay Jensen receives a package on his doorstep from his crush Hannah. However, Clay decides to wander through the town, and listen to all the tapes in one night.

Such a compelling story, yet so heartbreaking. This book made me stop for a while, and think about how some people are completely oblivious to the fact that their words and actions have the power to change someone’s life for better or worse. That’s why we need to choose our words wisely, and rethink our actions.
