13 reasons whyyy...

Holy crap.
Watch this short little clip. Don't worry it's short.
It's not like I'm going to make you watch a 10 minute clip of my dog drooling like some bloggers do.
This will blow your mind.

Are you freaked out? Wasn't that intense?
45% of you are probably thinking, "Wow, Jessica, that's what you think is intense? You're BORING."
And 30% of you are probably thinking, "WTF?"
and 24% (this is the group that I'm in) probably think, "HOLY SHIZ!! This is craazzzy. What is this? I must know more."
And then there's probably .75% of you that decided not to watch the video
and the .25% of you who don't know how to hit the play button.
Now that I've thoroughly read your minds, I'll tell you what this is.
It's an advertisement!
Weird right?

It's for the book, 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher. Which is basically about a guy who receives cassette tapes in the mail that are from a girl who committed suicide 2 weeks before, explaining the reasons why she committed suicide and the people she sent the tapes to are part of the reasons why she killed herself. But the thing is, the guy who received the tapes in the mail was actually in love with Hannah Baker and wanted to help her. So how did he contribute to her death?

CREEPY STUFF. I read it.
I had a coupon for 40% off a book at Borders so I bought it.
I kinda felt silly buying a book from the teen fiction section but I got it any way.
So what I thought of the book? It was very sad but it had an optimistic ending. I read it in 3 days. I guess the reason why was because it was a very captivating book and it was all written teen fictiony so I could get through it pretty quickly.

The book's idea was pretty intriguing. I enjoyed it.

The only thing I don't agree with is the cover art. The girl in the image is wearing high heels on a swing.

WHAT? Who does that?
