On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out how he made the list.

I wanted to read this, a teen girl killed herself, Pheobe Prince, her death darkened my world a bit, and broke my heart. I have three teens, her death awakened a new fear. This book-Haunting, a look into the events that led a teen girl end her life. She tapes her 13 reasons, the snowball that just rolled along. She sent them to the 13 people that were involved. They had to listen to her and know their part in her suicide. We follow a boy Clay, who "liked" her and did n othing to driver her down the dark hole but still has to live the story with her. It is a heartbreaking and honest story, I think one everyone should read.
