Netflix’s new series 13 Reasons Why is America’s latest obsession, and with good reason. I read one review that described it as “a high school melodrama for adults who like watching high school melodramas.” That’s a fair assessment save that 13 Reasons Why has a lot more to say than something like Party of Five or Riverdale ever will or did. It’s got us talking in my house about teenaged angst and suicide but also about teenaged happiness in general, all of which are relevant topics as we prepare for our oldest to start her first year of high school this coming fall. Our daughter is also named Hannah, and like the protagonist of 13 Reasons Why, she’s not an obvious cool kid, though like the show’s Hannah, she certainly has her share of friends. How we navigate the coming storms together is a matter of acutely critical importance.
