"13 Reasons Why" is a new Netflix show based on Jay Asher's best selling 2007 young adult novel that is about the suicide of a high school student, Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford). Although the concept seems to be ordinary and has been done before, the Selena Gomez produced flick manages to convey the message in a hair-raising, tingle-down-the-spine way that hooked the viewers.

The story is as real-life as it gets. Just like majority of the teens nowadays, Hannah struggles to figure what life is all about. As if being a teen in this generation was not hard enough, there were people who made it even tougher for the student that eventually made her decide to take her own life.

Since the death of Hannah Baker was not the end result of the show, but instead the beginning of the story, makes it even more interesting to watch. "13 Reasons Why" made people want to know what happened to the young student and who and what drove her to commit the ultimate punishment to ones' self -- suicide.

The title of the Netflix show was already intriguing enough, so when the cassette tapes reached Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette), a young boy who had a crush on Hannah, viewers began to piece the puzzle that the tapes contained the reasons of her death. The package that Clay got had 13 tapes, making "13 Reasons Why" a fairly fitting title.

The Netflix show made everyone realize that teens are struggling with a lot of pressure. School, friends, family. So when push comes to shove, It seems like life has not enough value anymore and anyone can just simply take it. This is exactly why Selena Gomez wanted to be a part of this series, revealing that she was also struggling with a lot of issues during the production of "13 Reasons Why."
