Hi all! ♡
Unless you have been living under a rock for the last couple of weeks, I will assume you have heard of the new Netflix series that is getting everybody talking, called, “Thirteen Reasons Why.” Just since coming out on March 31st, it has already become the most streamed series on Netflix. the show is adapted from a novel of the same title by Jay Asher.
If you haven’t heard what this series is about, let me give you a quick recap. This story is about a teenage girl named Hannah who was the center of attention in high school for a lot of rumors that were made up about her. Unfortunately, after a lot of bullying and stress from the struggles of high school, Hannah made the decision to end her life. However, before doing so, she creates thirteen voiceover recordings of herself explaining why she made the decision.
Before ending her life, she left no explanation for her parents. Her parents had absolutely no idea about what was going on in school, and they were completely blindsided by her action. The only people who were given reasons as to why she did what she did, was the thirteen people who were sent her audio tapes, where she says how each individual person lead her to complete the act.
For me, the show is worth all the hype because it brought to life a very important topic that is often not discussed. especially on how important it is to be kind, and how words and bullying will stick with its victim, made them depressed and even decided to kill themselves.
