The new series that recently began streaming on Netflix is adapted from a book and already has raving reviews despite only being aired on March 31st.
It should be taught in secondary schools around the world as it teaches teenagers a valuable lesson about bullying. Especially in the season finale but I won’t spoil it!
In my opinion, I haven’t watched a series like this yet- it’s an extremely basic idea portrayed in an original and creative way.
3. It’s woke af
At times it was extremely difficult to watch, especially the episodes surrounding Jessica’s party, but it’s a harsh reality of what happens in teen’s drinking cultures today.
4. Amazing cast
I mean Dylan Minnette’s journey and progress during the series is truly emotional but so interesting to watch.

8. Controversial Topics
Rape, Bullying, Sexuality, Anxiety, Depression, Suicide – there’s finally a programme that deals with hard topics that are difficult to discuss but are important to be represented.
There are so many factors in this series that make it relatable like dealing with rumours and relationships, making it an interesting watch.
The way Clay cares for Hannah can be hard to watch at times because for those of you who have already watched it, it was a bitter-sweet love.

13. You won’t want to stop watching
Heart-wrenching and warming, difficult to watch but you don’t want to look away. It’s simply unlike any other series.
