I'm having a hard time here right now with my current book, 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher.
Granted, the story is written in an awesome, compelling way. But it is also sad. On top of that, Hannah's story brings back memories I really don't need to revisit. To put it in a blunt way, I was the victim of bullying, emotional abuse for 12 out or 14 years at school. It was no fun and I'm glad I now have friends (other than my books) whom I trust, love and who support me no matter what. I didn't have that at school. All I had was my books! Maybe that's why I have become a book lover, a bookaholic, a voracious reader. I don't know.
I have lived with these memories neatly packed in the back of my mind, only breaking out when someone seriously hurts me, for almost 7 years now, but Jay Asher's 13 Reasons Why brought them out again, all at once. I can already tell writing a review for that one is not going to be easy!
