"I guess that's the point of it all. No one knows for certain how much impact they have on the lives of other people. Oftentimes, we have no clue. Yet we push it just the same."

"I hope you're ready, because I'm about to tell you the story of my life. More specifically, why my life ended. And if you're listening to these tapes, you're one of the reasons why."
There are many settings in this book. Hannah gives a map to everyone to go along with the tapes. The places on Hannah's map are real places in San Luis, California where the author grew up. For example, the Crestmont Theater where Clay and Hannah worked for is a real theater in San Luis.

Clay is one of the 12 people who received a tape from Hannah. Clay is also our narrator throughout the book. He is a person with a kind heart who does not like to be involved with people with a bad reputation. Although Clay did not have a big part in Hannah's incident as much as the others, he was affected a lot. When he had chances to stand up for Hannah, he didn't and he regrets it later on when it's too late
Hannah was a normal girl. High school rumors and bullies ruined her so, she decided to end it by ending her life. Before she did, she made tapes for people who were involved in why she made this decision.She had a plan to make sure everyone got the tapes and if the tapes did not get passed around to the right people there would be consequences.
There were 11 other people who received a tape besides Clay, making a total of 12 people. These people had a part in Hannah's suicide. They either made rumors, believed the rumors or they didn't help her when she needed them most.
This book has many themes. Such as; don't judge a person without getting to know them. You never know what they go through everyday. Let them tell you their story, people believed the rumors spread about Hannah without knowing her side. Also, be careful what you say. Words are very powerful and can have a big impact on a person. The rumors ruined Hannah and she decided to end it with a permanent solution. Lastly, stand up for a person who cant do it for themselves or tell anyone that can help and forget what people will think of you later on . Clay had chances to stand up for Hannah but he didn't because he was afraid what people would think of him.

This book gives you a new perspective on things. There are many themes you can learn from it. 13 Reasons Why makes you realize that there is always a solution to every conflict and suicide is not an answer.
"You don’t know what goes on in anyone’s life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can’t be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life. Everything. . . affects everything."
