13 Reasons Why...
Thirteen Reasons Why is about a girl named Hannah Baker. Hannah is your average shy teenage girl living in a messed up society. This all changes when Hannah decides to record 13 audiotapes (because every story has 13 sides) describing 13 different storeis about a different person and why they are partially to blame for her suicide.
This is the first tape Hannah recorded that starts the story.
This is Clay. Clay is the main character other than Hannah. The story is told from his point of view and what he thinks while listening to the tapes. Clay is unique, unlike the others on the tapes, He did nothing wrong. The only reason he got the tapes is because Hannah liked him and wanted him to hear her story. Unfortunatly clay himself loved her but didnt know what how to say things.
Tape one is about Justin Foley, he was her first kiss but after he started rumours of her taking her shirt off. Tape two, Alex Standall. he made a hot or not list and voted Hannah "Best ass in the freahman class" The third tape is about Jessica Davis and how she was supposedly her friend but then slapped Hannah because rumors were spread about her and Alex dating. The next tape, tape number 4 is about the Peeping Tom, Tyler Down. Tyler snuck to her house and took pictures of her in her room making her only safe comfort zone not safe anymore.
Tape 5 is about Courtney Crimson who used Hannah to keep her "good girl" image and give Hannah a bad image because of rumors about things she had in her drawers. The next tape is about Marcus Cooley. He took her on a date to Rosies and tried to makeout with her and make a move all because of the stupid rumors he heard. After this is when Hannah first thought about suicide. The 7th tape is talking about Zach Dempsey. Zach took her notes of encouragement from her class because he was embarrassed of being rejected at Rosies when Marcus left.
Tape 8 is about Ryan Shaver, he stole Hannahs poem that she wrote when she first concidered suicide and published it in a school article. The 9th tape is for Clay. Clay didnt do anyhting wrong but Hannah wanted to share how she felt about him. Tape number 10 brings up Justin again and how he let his freind rape a drunk Jessica and she felt partially to blame because she witnessed it but was to scared and shocked to do anything. Tape 11 happened right after and Jenny Kurtz hits a stop sign knocking it over and she refused to call the police and hannah didnt either because she was still afraid and shocked and this resulted in the death of another classmate.
The 12th tape is where she completly gives up on herself. This tape is about Bryce Walker and how she totally gave up and gave into losing her virginity. The last tape is in my opinion the saddest. Its about a teacher of hers Mr. Porter and how she goes to counsiling and basically tells him her desicion and he didnt go after her when she left and try to talk her out of it. this really made uo Hannahs mind for sure because she felt no one cared anyways or would mind if she was gone.
This Was the map Hannah made to pass around to the tape holders. Each star is a spot that a story from the tapes takes place at. Clay Visits almost all of them to get a better visual of each story.
