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: What is your biggest concern with young people and mobile devices?
Let's have a little CONTEST!

I have 5 "Advanced Reader's Copies" of my upcoming The Teens Guide to Social Media and Mobile Devices sitting right here on my desk... and I want to give them away. (I don't know if you saw... for some reason Amazon is offering these right now as a pre-order for just $7 and change! Grab that price while you have the chance. Wow.)

Simple: post a comment in this blog post answering this question, following these two simple instructions:

  1. Answer this: What is your biggest concern with young people today and their mobile devices? Answer this as long or as short as you like.

  2. Include your first name, and the city/state (province) you live in.


That's it! You've got until the end of the week then I'll randomly draw 5 winners!

I look forward to your responses!

Where are your kids turning for counsel
