Mother do you think they'll drop the bomb

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

This young adult book focuses on Hannah and Clay. It also dives into teen suicide and is hard to put down. Hannah has committed suicide. Clay received a box of tapes in the mail. 13 sides for thirteen reasons why. Each side is for a person, including Clay. He wonders how he could be part of the tapes. He had a crush on Hannah, but never got close. It's told in dual narratives that are heartbreaking, confusing, and mind-numbing. Follow Clay one night as he listens to 13 reasons while roaming the streets of his home town. Insightful and definitely not just for teen readers.
