[Giveaway] Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher PAPERBACKS w/ teaser for next book - INTERNATIONAL!

The news: 

To celebrate the paperback release of Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, I've been lucky enough to SHARE the amazement with you! Yes that's right - a giveaway!

Supplied by the lovely folks over at Big Honcho Media are TWO paperback copies of Thirteen Reasons Why. The special thing about these paperbacks is that they include a teaser for Asher's new book (that he only wrote half of!, ARC pictured left).
On May 12, 2011, Penguin launched the 13RW Project at, as a place for fans of Thirteen Reasons Why to record their thoughts, stories, videos and photos relating to the book, and to view what other readers from all across the country have shared. Each review is logged on a map to show the many locations that viewers are posting from, and all content is shareable through Facebook and Twitter.

There are plans for this Project to be taken internationally in the future. I'll be happy when I can post my own review snippet on the site! It's a huge thing, and trust me - you're going to want to be a part of this. Hundreds of people have already taken this in and have participated.

About the book:

Thirteen Reasons Why is the story of a girl named Hannah Baker who takes her own life. But before she does, she records several cassette tapes explaining why and sends them to the people she feels pushed her toward that decision. The story is told from the point of view of Clay Jensen who spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah’s voice as his guide. He becomes a first-hand witness to Hannah’s pain, and learns the truth about himself—a truth he never wanted to face.

The anti-bullying anthem was published in hardcover in October 2007 by Razorbill, and quickly became a word-of-mouth favorite among teenaged readers with fans claiming, “This book changed my life.” The novel has been on the New York Times children’s hardcover bestseller list for 65 weeks, foreign rights have been sold into 30 countries and it has been acquired by Universal Pictures and will star Selena Gomez.

About the author:

Jay Asher lives on the central coast of California with his wife and son. His favorite part of being an author is speaking with his readers at schools and libraries across the country.
