The whole issue of “suicide” is an uncomfortable thing to talk about. But it happens. And so, we have to talk about it. It’s dangerous not to talk about it. Because there’s always a room for hope. “13 Reasons Why” book author, Jay Asher, reveals that the book series almost had a completely different ending. Today’s episode is brought to you by The Un-Carrier with “T-Mobile One”, Get All unlimited. All in! If you’re like me, you’ve already binged watched the entire 13 Reasons’ series. And although we wish it had a different outcome, the book author says, “It almost actually did!” If you haven’t finish the Netflix series, don’t worry, there won’t be any spoilers ahead, But we are going to dive into how the book series almost ended in a drastically different way. As we know, Hannah Baker is a high school student, who takes her own life but it wasn’t always supposed to end that way. During the book’s 10th Anniversary Edition, Author, Jay Asher, reveals that Hannah actually survives in the original ending. And that version, she attempts to kill herself by swallowing pills, but was ultimately saved by her parents walking in. Who then took her to the hospital, to get her stomach pumped. Asher says quote, “I like the idea of ‘We’ve learned something from this. And yet, here’s a second chance.” However, he goes on to say, “Out of seriousness for the issue, we realized we can’t go there.” He explains,”No matter that there were missed opportunities for her. Those opportunites aren’t there if you do this.” “Once I realized that the messege of the story would be stronger and that it would definitely be more of a cautionary tale. I felt that was definitely the way to go.” The show has certainly affected us all, but it also really hit home for Little Mix’s, Perrie Edwards. Perrie took to Twitter writing quote, “The way they got the message across was amazing, and although I found it upsetting and massively disturbing I feel like every person going to school/high school should watch it.” Hannah: “Some of you cared…” Hannah: “None of you cared enough.” What do you guys think of almost alternate ending in the book series?
