Whether you loved it or hated it, Thirteen Reasons Why was a phenomenon that swept the beginning of 2017. The book, written by Jay Asher ten years ago, and the Netflix TV series of the same name brought to light an important and relevant conversation that needs to be had. Join us as we delve into our personal opinions of Asher's novel, the pros/cons of it's audiobook, and how the character of Hannah Baker was used to portray such an emotional and heavy topic. WARNING: this episode contains an immense amount of opinion and emotion. Please be advised that suicide is a very serious issue and our intent was to showcase how delicate the subject matter is when its submersed in literature--not to mention young adult novels.
