Teenage boys have come a long way since the staid 1980s when they were all lumped into the "Breakfast Club" categories of Brains, Druggies, and Jocks. Crisscrossing the countrymeeting with boys from different cultures, and socioeconomic backgroundsjournalist Malina Saval introduces readers to the next generation of male teens by creating new archetypes and redrawing the ever-expanding social map. "The Secret Lives of Boys" offers an uncensored look into boyhood that reveals the spine-tingling confessions, heartrending sadness and isolation, unbridled optimism, and seemingly boundless resilience of male teens today. Saval asks the pertinent questions: Who "are" these boys? What do "they" think of themselves? A compelling and candid look at male adolescence in the twenty-first century, "The Secret Lives of Boys" uncovers what our young people want you to know.
