My Rating: 4/5
I was really excited to read this book and I did so in a matter of a single day. This was one of those books that grips you from the very beginning, opening line, paragraph, so be it. The story line consisting of the cassettes sent by Hannah to thirteen individuals was a really interesting premise which only added to the intensity of the entire story. You'll devour page after page wanting to know more about Hannah's life and why those thirteen people were selected to receive the cassettes and what impact they had on Hannah's decision and past. More so, you'll be anticipating where Clay plays into everything and the impact he had on the entire situation.
