13 Reasons Why is the show that has everyone talking – and not always for the right reasons.
Based on the 2007 novel of the same name by Jay Asher, the Netflix series deals with topics such as sexuality, rape, self harm and bullying, which ends (or starts with) character Hannah Baker committing suicide.
The plot stems from a set of cassette tapes Baker made before she died, detailing the 13 reasons for her suicide which she then arranged to be sent for 13 of her high school peers who she believes played a part in her decision. Like a chain letter, each person is instructed to listen to the whole set before passing them on to the next person on the list.
The named "participants" include several people who start damaging rumours about Hannah to save their own backs, a boy who stalks and blackmails her and in another horrific scene, a rapist.

Now less than three weeks after dropping the series, Netflix has released another video on their social media, showcasing exactly what life as Hannah Baker would be like.
The immersive video has already been viewed over eight million times.

Simple but clever, the video shows the cyber bullying and harrassment the 17 year old experienced in real time, via texts, Snapchat and Instagram.
