Happy birthday Jay!

It's Jay Asher's birthday!  We have two fabulous books by Jay at the libary...

It's 1996, and less than half of all American high school students have ever used the Internet. Emma just got her first computer and Josh is her best friend. They power up and log on--and discover themselves on Facebook, fifteen years in the future. Everybody wonders what their Destiny will be. Josh and Emma are about to find out.
When high school student Clay Jenkins receives a box in the mail containing thirteen cassette tapes recorded by his classmate Hannah, who committed suicide, he spends a bewildering and heartbreaking night crisscrossing their town, listening to Hannah's voice recounting the events leading up to her death.
Thirteen Reasons Why is a really really excellent book that if you haven't picked up yet, you should!  We also have the book on CD version, which is really well done too.  ALSO!  13RW has been picked up to be made into a movie!  Selena Gomez has been cast as Hannah, but no word yet on who will play Clay.
