The new Netflix series 13 Reasons Why is the thing to watch this month. A lot of students have been talking about how good it is.

The series begins with a girl, Hannah Baker, who’s new in town trying to make friends. Sadly, things start to take a turn for the worst and she ends up taking her own life.

The parents of Hannah and all of the school administrators were oblivious to her suffering.

“It’s a really eye-opening series because it shows the events that led up to this, and some people don’t think about how their actions are going to affect someone, so hopefully this will show some people the damage it causes,” said Sylvia Jankowski.

Throughout the show, Hannah progressively shows signs of depression, but nobody takes action or even shows any interest in helping her.

This series is an interesting take on bullying in schools because it is prevalent, but many people don’t recognize it for what it is–a serious matter.

A lot of students don’t always recognize bullying or they push it off in a joking matter, when in fact not all people take it as light as others do.

Tune in to the first 13 episodes available on Netflix now.
