This unprecedented look into the lives of young boys is a parent's key to understanding the hidden hopes, fears, pains, and passions of their sons. Male teenage cliques have always existed, but they have come a long way since the days when most adolescents could be lumped together as 'Druggies', 'Nerds' etc. For this timely book, investigative journalist Malina Sava travelled across America, meeting boys from varying socio-economic backgrounds and geographic regions, introducing readers to the next generation of male teens, and creating a new series of archetypes to define today's youth."The Secret Lives of Boys" unabashed honesty and uncensored outlook on boyhood culture will proffer, by virtue of its subjects' spine-tingling confessions, an authoritative entree into the clandestine culture of boyhood, lending a voice to a demographic undeservedly jilted. This book asks the pertinent questions - who are these boys? Never mind what adult society thinks of them; what do they think of themselves? How can we advise them properly in a way that they will not resist? What can the educators, the guidance counsellors, the principals teach us that clinical textbook psychologists do not get to see? Saval digs deep to uncover what binds these boys, what makes them different, what they want you to know.
