The most talked about series nowadays is 13 reasons why, but why is that?
What makes it different than any other drama series?
Written by Jay Asher, 13 reasons why is a young adult fiction and was published in 2007. The series’ first episode was released on the 31st of March, 2017 on Netflix. But you can easily google these information from Wikipedia, so what is this “13 reasons why” drama?
It’s about a girl who commits suicide after several series of events happening in her life. It’s an intense book and series, I must say.
Many people described the series as “dramatic”. Or that those aren’t enough reasons for a girl to go kill herself. However, everyone has a respected opinion. I’m not saying they’re wrong. But the thing is that this series sheds a light about how high schools are. Either here in Egypt, or anywhere else in the world. It’s pretty much the same. The ol
whole judged on based what you wear, what kind of car you drive, what you think, who you like, or even mistakenly judged for something you haven’t done. Being an 11th grader, I must say high school isn’t the best experience but it definitely taught me a lot of things. And one of them is how ignorant people are. How people don’t take depression or mental illnesses any way seriously. So this series basically raised an awareness about the many things that a teenage year old boy or girl goes through.
Basically, the whole series just keeps on restating the same idea over and over again. And that is your actions are what you live for. You live to choose what do you decide to do. You either do good, or you do bad.
“Everything…affects everything.” – Jay Asher
This sums up pretty much the whole lesson that could be learned.
Unfortunately, we live in a world where people act and talk but very few sit and listen. You have no idea how much your actions can cost you. How much you can affect someone’s living experience through one word or action. It affects everything.
13 reasons why is a teenager drama that’s worth watching. Wherever you are right now, high school or college, it’s still a series you wouldn’t want to miss out on.
