Below is the synopsis of "13 Reasons Why," per Rotten Tomatoes

Based on the best-selling book by Jay Asher, 13 Reasons Why follows teenager Clay Jensen in his quest to uncover the story behind his classmate and crush Hannah's decision to end her own life.

While the series only holds an overall 54 percent rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the audience score is an overall 71 percent and the first season holds a fresh rating of 81 percent. IndieWire's Liz Shannon Miller wrote about the show's second season:

“13 Reasons Why” features no shortage of missteps. But it’s a show that so deeply feels for its characters, so deeply feels these scenarios, that it’s hard to be mad at it. At its core, it’s a show about young people on the cusp of discovering everything good that the world has to offer them, more often than not are slapped down by life’s toughest realities. The show doesn’t offer solutions, but it does offer empathy. And sometimes, that’s exactly what’s needed.
