Title: Thirteen Reasons Why
Author: Jay Asher
Release Date: March 31, 2017
This show killed me, I spent most of it in tears and it was absolutely heartbreaking and amazing all at once. As an adaptation, I think they did a great job of adapting this for the screen. It stayed faithful to the books and the few changes that were put in place didn’t bother me. If you haven’t read the book or watched the TV show yet I strongly recommend you do so. There are a lot of triggers present in the show so be careful as you watch it but ultimately you will be sucked into this world and will never be let go.
You can’t stop the future.
You can’t rewind the past.
The only way to learn the secret . . . is to press play.
Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker–his classmate and crush–who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah’s voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out why.
Clay becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah’s pain, and as he follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his town, what he discovers changes his life forever.
