You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget you only get what you give

Have you read The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky?

It's not really about the same thing, but I think it has the same appeal. [:

Nicola... you literally took the words out of my mouth!!

I loved Thirteen Reasons Why, I thought it was brilliant.

I couldn't really think of any similar books, but between Amazon's similarity box and my personal books-I-enjoyed-list I'd recommend:
Looking For Alaska - John Green
Before I Die - Jenny Downham
A Walk To Remember - Nicholas Sparks

I loved all three of those books (:
Plus The Perks of Being a Wallflower (my alltime favourite book!)

I read Thirteen Reasons Why not too long ago actually and I really liked it.

To be honestly I can't really think of a simliar type book because that one had a pretty original idea, but if you're looking for one that describes events that are in a recorded type style i'd suggest...

Go Ask Alice- Anonymous
Crank- Ellen Hopkins
And of course...The Perks of Being a Wallflower. (This is the third time it's been suggested, so if you haven't read it yet, you should! )

Again, those books I suggested aren't exactly the same subject as Thirteen Reasons Why, but they're kind of similar in the way it's told? Heh.


Don't just exist...LIVE.

I love how you say "The Perks of Being A Wallflower" and suddenly the whole of TH is like... WHAT?! WHERE?!

But Crank was a really good one to suggest Moyshi, I loved that book when I read it!
