Reviews for Thirteen Reasons Why:

"Eerie, beautiful, and devastating." - Chicago Tribune

"A stealthy hit with staying power...thriller-like pacing." - The New York Times

"13 Reasons Why will leave you with chills long after you have finished read." Amber Gibson, NPR's "All Things Considered"

"When a book actually affects the way you breathe...you know it is powerful.  When a book changes the way you look at life, you know it is nothing short of spectacular.  Thirteen Reasons Why is that book.  I can't think of anyone who shouldn't read this book.  You will hurt, you will smile, and you will never be the same." - Diana, reader review.
