The book Thirteen Reasons why, by Jay Asher, is a perfect example of depression in teens. In the book we follow Clay Jensen, a teen has just received audio tapes recorded by Hannah Baker. Prior to this, Hannah ended her own life. The tapes depict the reasons leading up to her suicide. Thirteen reasons to be more precise, with a different person behind each reason. The catch is, the tapes are only sent to people on the tape. We go along with Clay as he listens to each reason, waiting for his name to pop up, learning more and more about someone who was no longer there. This tale touches a lot on the fact that Hannah suffered from depression and how no one noticed. She showed the signs and even but no one cared. Each reason drove her closer to the edge. Even the small things that others thought were relevant. The small things always matter and this book shows that in a big way. It is a good read and I recommend it for anyone to read. Its not a happy story, but it helps to know how much of an impact we have on others.
