THIRTEEN REASONS WHY changed lives. Now you can experience the 10th anniversary edition!
It’s been ten years since Thirteen Reasons Why first graced bookshelves, and we’re thrilled to be celebrating this impactful novel’s latest edition filled with extra content, which hits shelves today!
Jay Asher’s story comes from two perspectives: Flashbacks from Hannah, a girl who killed herself just weeks ago, and in real time with Clay, a boy who Hannah points out as a contributing factor in a series of audio tapes she left behind. Disturbing and effective, Hannah’s story is a study of how many cases of depression develop that will stick with you for a lifetime.
In a time filled with bullying, hate, and superficial views, Thirteen Reasons Why offers up a deeper understanding of our impact. Clay doesn’t necessarily see the impact he and his peers had on Hannah Baker, but they’re definitely there and enough to drive her to a dark place. Beyond advocating sympathy, the story explores the many ways we can be support systems for peers dealing with depression and how we can also find support. “This book saves lives” has almost become a cliche in this age, but we think this novel actually does.
The new 10th anniversary edition is offering fans even more to see and feel including…
- An introduction from its award-winning author, Jay Asher;
- The until-now-secret alternate ending for Hannah and Clay that almost was;
- Early notes and ideas of how the story came to be;
- Deleted scenes;
- And more!

Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker–his classmate and crush–who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah’s voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out why.
Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah’s pain, and as he follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his town, what he discovers changes his life forever.
