R3eason Fourteen

*Sequel to [Thirteen Reasons Why] by the amazing Jay Asher. When Hannah Baker committed suicide, she left a bunch of cassette tapes for thirteen people who played a part in her death, for them to pass along like a chain letter. If the thirteen failed to do this, a second set of tapes would be released to the entire school student body. That's what Hannah told them. And Tony, one of Clay's friends, received the second set...Or did he? It turns out that the steady, grounded figure from the original book is not as innocent as he seems. Tony did not, in fact, receive the second set of tapes. He had gotten his own version of the story, thirteen tapes of the late Hannah Baker speaking directly to himself. Telling him a story that he will never forget.


3. One Week Ago

It's been two weeks since Hannah's death, and another shoebox-sized package is propped against the front door at an angle. At first I think it's one of my dad's clients. People usually leave stuff for my dad to fix in our front yard. I don't find anything wrong with this whole picture until I see the name scribbled on the side of the side of the box-my name, Tony.

I scoop up the package with both hands and head for the garage. I grab a pair of scissors from my dad's worktable and run the blade around the box, letting the lid fall to the floor. The pacakge is identical to the one received just a while ago.

Inside, I find the same seven audiotapes wrapped in the same thick bubblewrap. Just like last time, each tape is numbered in the upper right hand corner with nail polish, only this time it's pink. 1 and 2 on the front and back of the first tape, 3 and 4 on the second, all the way to 13.

It's not a matter of how to play the tapes. Even though they're extremely outdated, my car still has a stereo that plays cassette tapes and I always have my Walkman. It's a matter of why. Why would someone send me another set of tapes? After nine people have already passed along the original set!

Well, there's only one way to find out. I grab my walkman, insert the first tape, and pop on my yellow headphones.

And then I press PLAY.
