Reader's Advisory: Thirteen Reasons Why

Reader's Advisory is a new feature here at The Fiction Pixie. It is an opportunity to stretch my library legs, expand my book knowledge, and share older books with you that need some limelight! Typically, I expect this to come out Thursday but its been a rough start with life getting in the way and losing my notes, so here goes nothing!

If you liked...

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Told in the journalistic style similar to the one the experience Clay has with Hannah's tapes; this book is a moving and powerful coming of age story. With suicide, sex, experience and growth this book teaches the reader about finding themselves and understanding what they find.

Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson

Unlike the other two books that are told in a memoir-esque style about coping as survivors of suicide, this book is about finding the strength to overcome. Tyler is a boy facing a troubled home life, new found attention at school but through it all teeters on the thought of suicide. A powerful yet dark experience in taking your life into your own hands.
