Dream big, they say, shoot for the stars. Then they lock us away for 12 years and tell us where to sit, when to pee and what to think. Then we turn 18, and even though we’ve never had an original thought, we have to make the most important decision of our lives. And if you don’t have the money, and if you don’t really have the grades, a lot of the decision gets made for you.
— Hannah Baker, 13 Reasons Why
