Description - The Secret Lives of Boys by Malina Saval
Male teenage cliques have come a long way since the days of the Breakfast Club and Fast Times at Ridgemont High, when most adolescents could be lumped together as either Jocks, Druggies, or Nerds. After crisscrossing the country-meeting with boys from varying cultures, creeds and socio-economic backgrounds, and geographic regions ranging from Seattle to Miami, Boston to Chicago-investigative journalist Malina Saval introduces readers to the next generation of male teens by creating a new series of archetypes and redrawing the ever-expanding social map. The Secret Lives of Boys is an uncensored look into boyhood culture and reveals with unabashed honesty spine-tingling confessions, heartrending sadness and isolation, unbridled optimism and seemingly boundless resilience. By listening without judging, Saval has created an authoritative entre into the clandestine culture of boyhood, lending a voice to a demographic undeservedly jilted. This book asks the pertinent questions: Who are these boys? What do they think of themselves? How can we advise them properly in a way that they will not resist?
Saval digs deep to uncover what binds these boys, what makes them different, what they want you to know.
