A Poe Boy From a Poe Family

13 Reasons Why

Most Netflix addicts by now know the hit series 13 Reasons Why, the story of Hannah Baker, a girl who killed herself and left behind tapes for her classmates explaining how they contributed to her fate. This author has yet to indulge in the series yet – saving it for a lazy weekend – however, the book that the series was based on, originally released in 2007 by Jay Asher, is a classic favorite of mine.
