It has sold over 2.5 million copies in the US alone and was recently made into a very popular 13-part series on Netflix.  His second YA novel, The Future of Us, was coauthored with Printz-honor winner Carolyn Mackler. His novels have been translated into over 30 languages. His third novel, What Light, was released in October 2016.

Reviews for Thirteen Reasons Why:

"Eerie, beautiful, and devastating." - Chicago Tribune

"A stealthy hit with staying power...thriller-like pacing." - The New York Times

"13 Reasons Why will leave you with chills long after you have finished read." Amber Gibson, NPR's "All Things Considered"

"When a book actually affects the way you breathe...you know it is powerful.  When a book changes the way you look at life, you know it is nothing short of spectacular.  Thirteen Reasons Why is that book.  I can't think of anyone who shouldn't read this book.  You will hurt, you will smile, and you will never be the same." - Diana, reader review.
