Giveaway: 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher

In celebration of the paperback release and launch of the 13 Reasons Why website I have a giveaway for you!

Penguin launched the 13RW Project at as a place for fans of Thirteen Reasons Why to record their thoughts, stories, videos and photos relating to the book, and to view what other readers from all across the country have shared. Each review is logged on a map to show the many locations that viewers are posting from, and all content is shareable through Facebook and Twitter.

Here is a little about the book if you are unfamiliar: 

Thirteen Reasons Why is the story of a girl named Hannah Baker who takes her own life. But before she does, she records several cassette tapes explaining why and sends them to the people she feels pushed her toward that decision. The story is told from the point of view of Clay Jensen who spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah’s voice as his guide. He becomes a first-hand witness to Hannah’s pain, and learns the truth about himself—a truth he never wanted to face.

The anti-bullying anthem was published in hardcover in October 2007 by Razorbill, and quickly became a word-of-mouth favorite among teenaged readers with fans claiming, “This book changed my life.” The novel has been on the New York Times children’s hardcover bestseller list for 65 weeks, foreign rights have been sold into 30 countries and it has been acquired by Universal Pictures and will star Selena Gomez.

I'll admit I have had the book for years but have been a little afraid to read it. I know my reaction to it will be really strong and I'm not sure if I'm ready for it yet. From what I've heard this book is amazing though!

  1. Is it safe to assume that since this post went up today June 20th, that you meant the contest ends June 27 and not May 27? I write the wrong date all the time. The year is half over and I am still somewhere in April or May. LOL
    Have a great day.

  2. LOL! Thanks for catching that!

  3. I've picked this book up dozens of times at the bookstore, but I always end up putting it back because like you I'm a little afraid of reading it. Thanks for a chance to win a copy.

  4. I've been curious about this book for a long time. I'd like to win it and share it with my teenage nieces. thanks for the chance!
