Release Day Blitz: 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Title: Thirteen Reasons Why
Author: Jay Asher
Series: Stand Alone
Publisher: Razorbill
Publication Date: December 27, 2016

When I was given the opportunity to participate in the release day blitz for Thirteen Reasons Why, I knew I couldn't pass up on the chance to help showcase this amazing book.  It has been a while since I read it and I really do need to revisit it.  However, when I did originally read it, I DEVOURED it.  I couldn't put it down until it was done.

It was that good.

Thirteen Reasons Why isn't an easy read by any means though.  It is on a very very tough topic, but a topic that really needs more discussion than it gets.  Suicide.  Teen suicide.

And what I loved the most about this book is that it talked about teen suicide and showed us how it is important to be aware.  And even though the premise of the book is that the girl who committed suicide has sent the "13 reasons why" some tapes that "explain" why she committed suicide, it still does not make suicide sound like it is okay.

This book will teach those who read it a lot as long as they are willing to listen.

And here it is 10 years later!  It is still as important, if not more so, than when it was released and they have given it such a beautiful cover to commemorate it and they have given us a bit more content than it had originally.  

Really, if you haven't read it yet, you need to.  If it's been awhile, I suggest considering rereading.  Share this story with others in your life, especially teens.

Just read and listen to what this story has to tell you!  You will be happy and that much better for doing so!

The new content includes:

  • An introduction from its award-winning author, Jay Asher;
  • The until-now-secret alternate ending for Hannah and Clay that almost was;
  • Early notes and ideas of how the story came to be
  • Deleted scenes
  • And more!
