Michele Selene Ang: Life, Liberty High, and the Pursuit of Something New

At Liberty High, heightened emotions are pretty much the norm these days. After Hannah Baker’s tragic suicide, and the release of a number of secrets on the tapes she recorded detailing her rationale behind the act, not a day goes by within the haunted halls of her former campus that isn’t brimming with drama. Jocks taunt lesser-status students with their powerful demeanors. Geeks use their imaginations and nightmares to retaliate with cyber-attacks. Girls cover the walls of the bathroom stalls with hits targeting their peers. Boys break out in massive brawls, slamming each other into lockers and throwing sucker punches, sometimes even without reason. Sometimes the administration gets involved in these giant, pubescent war zones.

“F**king boys,” she hisses before she turns around and walks out of the school.
