Page after page, Thirteen Reasons Why captivated me throughout the entirety of the story and left me weeping over the pain that Clay and Hannah experienced. Clay Jensen, a hardworking, overachieving high school boy, received a box of tape recordings from a girl who he’d never thought he’d hear from again—because she was dead. She committed suicide a week before and Clay was still in shock; feelings to which I could relate. Clay scavenged around town for clues about her life as he listened to the deranged voice of the girl he liked, Hannah Baker. He then learned her “reasons” for ending her life: people and actions—like the sexual harassments that multiple boys put her through or a death she felt she could have prevented—that left her broken and isolated.

As he was driving he began to panic not paying much attention to the things around him he ran and red light not noticing that he was going over 60 miles per hour then BOOM!!! A large truck struck the side of the car flipping it multiple times he began screaming then all of sudden he heard his name “BRYCE! What the hell are you yelling for?” his mother said.

The speaker is Clay Jensen which he says this because he didn’t know Hannah through and through, just the parts he witnessed with the rumors around him, but the tapes helped him understand her from the past few months. This passage is important because it shows that Clay is starting to understand Hannah and how the stories on the tapes affected her. Because of that reason, also, I genuinely enjoyed how he says he feels he knows the Hannah from the past few months plus he’s beginning to understand her, I chose this passage.
