Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher was published in 2007. I was able to know about the book and get my own copy back in 2009. I still have it. When I purged half of my bookshelf, Thirteen Reasons Why remained. It was not a book that bought me joy. It wasn’t something that made me feel good about myself or have that tingly feeling that most of my other books cause me. In fact, it was the total opposite. I felt nothing but negative feelings. It made me sad, and angry, so, so angry. It made me cry – which is actually not a feat since most Disney movies make me cry, but you get my point.
