I expect today to be a day of much rejoicing over at The Disco Mermaids. Jay Asher's book, Thirteen Reasons Why, is due to be released. And I, for one, predict that it's going to be a huge success. When I reviewed it last month I said:
"Read it because the characters are so strong that they positively breathe from the page. Read it because by the time you finish, you'll care about Hannah and Clay as though they were your friends. Read it because the narrative structure is utterly engaging (as well as technically impressive). I also confidently predict that once you start this book, you'll read it because you can't not read it."
Still true. Go, buy it, read it. Oh, and this post by Jay, about being the first person to return a copy, is also funny. People celebrate things in their own unique ways, I guess.
