The only way to learn the secret . . . is to press play.
Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Bakerâ€“his classmate and crushâ€“who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannahâ€™s voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, heâ€™ll find out why.
Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a firsthand witness to Hannahâ€™s pain, and as he follows Hannahâ€™s recorded words throughout his town, what he discovers changes his life forever.
