Seen and Heard: Teenagers Talk About Their Lives
Seen and Heard, an uncensored and penetrating look into the very private world of the American teenager, shatters the prevailing stereotype of uncommunicative kids with a face-to-face look at fifty teens who give voice to what their lives are really like in riveting, no-holds-barred interviews.-- From a young film star, a barrio gang member, an urban sophisticate, and a farm boy, young people between the ages of thirteen and nineteen discuss how they feel about family, religion, school, music, peer pressure, race, sex, drugs, and alcohol.-- Celebrity teens include Sky Fisk, star of The Babysitter's Club and daughter of actress Sissy Spacek; Lydia Ooghe, star of Les Miserables and The Secret Garden; and Alexandra Baryshnikov, daughter of Jessica Lange and Mikhail Baryshnikov.-- Through photographs and in-depth interviews (often the result of many hours or even days of talking) that show the faces and reveal the voices of America's teens, the overwhelming message is not one of apathyand ignorance but one of hope, ambition, and the desire to be understood and accepted.-- For anyone raising a teen today, Seen and Heard will serve as an essential wake-up call for understanding, helping, and supporting kids through this equally unsettling time in their lives, and the teens who read this book will discover that their voices are being heard.
