Hey guys! Welcome to this weeks Recommend A..! Sorry I completely missed last week. I was at the lake for the weekend and didn't have time to put together a post. On top of that I had a tough time thinking as far back as 2010. This weeks topic is a bit easier. Recommend A...book published by a guy. Simple enough except for the fact the world is sorely lacking guy authors in the YA genre!
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
So, I decided to choose Thirteen Reasons Why. Man did this book rock! I already loved Jay Asher after reading The Future of Us, but this book just pushed him over the edge. Hopefully he comes out with more new and exciting reads!Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers thirteen cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate and crush who committed suicide two weeks earlier.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.
Through Hannah and Clay's dual narratives, debut author Jay Asher weaves an intricate and heartrending story of confusion and desperation that will deeply affect teen readers.
Have you read any good books by a guy? Let me know! I would love to check them out!
