Book Review By: josy follick

A boy with a newfound reputation as a rule breaker enters his senior year battling his angry father, a school rival, and demanding teachers, all while trying to impress his long-time crush. "Twisted" is told in protagonist Tyler's point of view, making it easy to relate with the struggles he faces.
High schooler Clay's life changes when he receives a box of tapes in the mail; a girls spoken suicide note, describing the events leading up to her death. Told in his point of view, "Thirteen Reasons Why" creates an easy to imagine story, with relateable emotions being felt the whole time while reading.
If you liked "Twisted" by Laurie Halse Anderson, then read "Thirteen Reasons Why" by Jay Asher. Both stories are easy to relate to, with dark, 'twisted' (hehe, see what I did there?) plots. Although "Twisted" is slightly more lighthearted with its comedic dialogue, whereas "Thirteen Reasons Why" is more serious, they still have a depressing tone that makes them unique in contrast to other books.
