High school can be a tough time for many of us. We have to figure out who we want to be, and what we want to do. We have to learn who our friends are. There are the popular kids, the geeky kids, the jocks, and the dorks. Sometimes, kids get picked on and bullied. Getting bullied is really depressing. High school can be a hardcore experience.

Dominique:  You’ve been to high school, right?

Romeo:  Yeah. I…

Dominique:  One of the reasons why my child is being homeschooled, because I’m like, “Not today!”

Romeo:  OK.

Dominique:  Stuff that happened to that poor girl. I mean…

Romeo:  Oh, well…

Dominique:  And her parents!

Romeo:  Yeah. So, you might not want to say too much. I don’t know if there’s like, you know, other people around that may not have seen it all. You don’t want to ruin it! No spoiler alerts, you know?

Dominique:  I guess I can’t say anything else.

Romeo:  Oh! Well, then on that note, I guess we’ll just wrap that topic up.

United States

Yes, I have watched it I think it has a hardcore message to students and what happened in high school which it is somehow true although I didn’t experience those problems in high school sure those problems exist in our life and yes you should watch it.

I have started watching this series, and it made me feel really depressed because the series is too hardcore!

Although I am really intrigued I can’t finish watching it anyway!

I haven’t watched that series, Although I myself bullied when I was young, the experience itself  is so terrible, I felt so helpless.

La Princesse de la vie


I watched the TV show a couple of months ago. And I liked it really. I don’t get why most people think it was boring and too overwhelming to watch! Yes I agree it was intense and depressing but it had a story, one that keeps you excited to see what is going to happen next. I didn’t binge watch it either, but it kept me intrigued to the end.
