E. Hinton and Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.When high school sophomores John and Lorraine made a prank phone call to an elderly stranger named Angelo Pignati, what starts as a practical joke quickly turns into a friendship that changes all of their lives forever. But when their friendship ends in tragedy, the only way for John and Lorraine to find peace is to write down their friend's story-the true story of the Pigman.

Shortly thereafter, he wrote his first novel for young adults, The Pigman, which has gone on to sell millions of copies.
