Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind. —Rudyard Kipling
Every blog and news hub wants to comment on how graphic the portrayal of Hannah’s suicide was, debating whether it was necessary to show in such detail. But the truth is, there’s a lot more to the show than the topic of suicide. In their serial adaptation of Jay Asher’s novel 13 Reasons Why, Netflix addresses peer pressure, bullying, and sexual assault. But in the flurry of issues teens have trouble understanding, much less coping with, I wanted to pause and write about the 5 things I would change about the show.
What other changes would you make in the show? Are there any other loose ends that didn’t come back during the series? Join the conversation, and leave a comment below!
