Unpacking 13 Reasons Why
Two Glaring Truths the Show Unveiled
by Rob Chagdes
4/30/2017

It’s Hannah, Hannah Baker… I’m about to tell you…why my life ended. And if you’re listening to this tape, you’re one of the reasons why.

Netflix has once again introduced a show that has captured the conversation among teenagers, much like last summer’s hit Stranger Things.

Based on the Jay Asher novel of the same name, 13 Reasons Why, tells the story of a teen girl’s decision to end her own life. High school sophomore Hannah Baker records thirteen reasons she ended her life, because, as she says, “there are thirteen sides to every story.” Recording on old-school cassette tapes, Hannah orchestrates a scenario in which those she blames for her death will listen to the tapes and know why she took her own life.

JONATHAN'S BLOG: Your worries about teens and mobile devices
Some GREAT feedback from you all in my last post as you shared your concerns about today's teens and their mobile devices. I've just posted the 5 contest winners below (in this post) who each will win a free "advanced reader" copy of my upcoming book, The Teens Guide to Social Media and Mobile Devices.

For those of you who didn't win... and want a copy. Some great options right now. Amazon has it for pre-sale today for almost 50% off... just $7 and change. Grab that before it changes (who knows Amazon's logic with price-setting). Then I'm pre-selling autographed first editions on my site for just $8.99 ...I'll be personally signing all pre-orders.

Enjoy!

Whispering Thoughts of Suicide
Where are your kids turning for counsel
David R. Smith and Jonathan McKee

The smartphones kids carry around in their pockets are powerful devices. They can help students study, access helpful resources, travel safely, and much more. 

Sadly, sometimes smartphones are also the tool kids use to communicate “under the radar.”
