Giveaway: Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why

Thirteen Reasons Why was a book I read before I started blogging, and even though it's been nearly four years since I've read it, I still remember it clearly as being one of the best books I've ever read. It's an amazing, amazing book. It's filled with emotion and fantastic and well developed characters as well. It's truly one of the most raw and memorable YA books out there, which makes me all the more happy to announce that I'm hosting a giveaway for TWO copies of the newly released paperback addition, thanks to the lovely people at Big Honcho Media and Penguin.

In case you have no idea what this book is out, here's the summary:
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 whyand 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 Timeschildren’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.
About the author:

  1. That's a very clever and interesting website and I think it will benefit a lot of people. At least, I am hoping that it will reach them. I've seen this book on the shelves of my local bookstore, but it's never made it's way to my library as I was hoping that it would. Still, though, I've leafed through it and actually come close to buying it a couple off times. So, thank you, so much for this generous giveaway! :)
