August Read of The Month, Thirteen Reasons Why

For the second consecutive month, my Read of the Month will be an eBook.  I really enjoyed reading my first eBook last month.  Soon after finishing I decided to use my iTunes account to pick up a new eBook for August.  I thought August would be a great month to read a young adult novel to get me into "back to school" mode.  My selection for August is Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.

August Read of the Month, Thirteen Reasons Why 

The novel is centers around a box of cassette tapes sent by Hannah Baker to classmate Clay Jenson.  He is one of thirteen individuals to receive the tapes from Hannah (after her suicide via overdose).  The novel shifts between Clay's thoughts and Hannah's voice on the tapes.  According to Hannah, each person that receives the tapes has something to do with Hannah's suicide.  I am only a few ePages in and I am hooked.  I think it is going to be an amazing novel.  Many of the reviews I read mention that the book should be a must read for high school students to demonstrate to negative impact of bullying.  I look forward to providing a review shortly.  Have any of you read this book?  I hear it is quite popular, I look forward to enjoying it over the next few days.
