I can almost understand how this rumor kind of sounds real for a very brief moment.
- My name is Jay.
- Jay's Journal is written by Anonymous, which is often shelved right beside Asher.
- Thirteen Reasons Why is about cassette tapes recorded by someone who committed suicide, and Jay's Journal is a real journal (though highly altered) written by someone who committed suicide.
[from the back of Jay's Journal]
Jay thought he could handle anything. The first time he took drugs was for fun. But what started as an escape quickly spiraled into a haze of addiction. That was just the beginning of the dangerous path that ultimately led Jay to take his own life.
Here's the thing...
- Jay's Journal was published when I was three years old.
- If I ever do write something anonymously and try to pass it off as a real journal, I probably won't name the main character after myself.
But what really has me confused is that people are arguing with the booksellers, swearing that I wrote this book and that it's a true story.
One, I've never done any drugs. And two...I didn't kill myself.
But sometimes, as Hannah Baker says, you can't disprove a rumor. So this bookstore ordered extra copies of Jay's Journal to keep up with the demand.
Maybe I should autograph the books and really freak people out!
Since I live in your town, I'm kind of embarrassed for my fellow San Luis Obispans.
You didn't kill yourself when you were three after publishing a journal? So you SAY... I'll bet next you'll be saying Elvis is dead and you weren't born in Kenya.
That book looks a lot like Go Ask Alice which on the cover also says Anonymous
but is written by Beatrice Sparks who as I just found out from Goodreads also wrote Jay's Journal.
Maybe she can help you out with the rumors lol.
Oh and I just noticed its right next to Go Ask Alice in that picture :P.
hahahahahah . i don't get this . lol what is this book ?
Maybe you should ask for your royalties?
"If they think it's you, do it. Keep the fans happy." That was actually advice from Ben Johnson the actor to Barry Corbin, a fellow actor. Their voices were very similar and Barry was often asked for Ben's autograph.
Fans starting rumors about you? You are officially a celebrity, Jay lol. Seriously, the fact that they're passionate enough about their belief to argue with booksellers. Shall I expect you in US magazine next? :-D
Do I see a copy of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudece next to my other favorite book of all time? Why, yes. Yes, I do. *heart melts* Oh, wait a minute. Is that copy of Thirteen Reasons Why autographed? Yes, I believe so. *heart melts more*
Ha! My, oh, my, fans are spreading rumors? You'd think after reading TRW they wouldn't do such a thing. Well, it's the good type of spreading rumors, right? I mean, when you hear that your fav show or book is coming out with a movie, you'd like to tell everyone. Yet it's a rumor, and you can't disprove a rumor.
