Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler


Jay Asher has worked at an independent bookstore, an outlet bookstore, a chain bookstore, and two public libraries. He hopes, someday, to work for a used bookstore. When he is not writing, Jay plays guitar and goes camping. THIRTEEN REASONS WHY was his first published novel.

Carolyn Mackler is the author of VEGAN VIRGIN VALENTINE, the acclaimed prequel to this novel, as well as the Michael L. Printz Honor Book THE EARTH, MY BUTT, AND OTHER BIG ROUND THINGS. She lives in New York.


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 an America Online CD-ROM.

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.
