9780099592075: Generation Z: Their Voices, Their Lives

Generation Z have never had to save their pocket money to buy an album. They laugh when you tell them there used to be four channels on TV. Not many of them have grandparents that fought in a war. They've never known a world without the internet and have grown up with violence and porn at their fingertips with an object barely known to just one generation before them: a mobile phone.

Generation Z are growing up in a world of widening social inequality, political apathy and economic uncertainty. They join gangs, are obese, have underage sex, drink, commit crime and are a menace to society - or so the media leads us to believe.

Chloe Combi has interviewed hundreds of teenagers and children born between 1994 and 2005. She has talked to some of the richest and poorest in kids in the country. She has travelled on night buses with gangs, gone on a post-GCSE trip to Glastonbury, hung out in crack houses where teenagers get high, rehabilation centres where they get help and churches where they find God.

Chloe has found that Generation Z are selfish, violent, scared, sex-obsessed and apathetic. She has also found them delightful, curious, kind, and worried about their futures.

Generation Z is an emotional, illuminating, sometimes dark, sometimes hilarious odyssey through the lives of this generation told in their own voices.

Book Description:

Shocking, illuminating, heartbreaking and hilarious: today's teenagers in their own words.

From the Back Cover:

‘An important and deeply revealing book showcasing what it is really like to be a teenager in the 21st Century.’ Boris Johnson

Today’s teenagers are growing up in a world of widening social inequality, political apathy and economic uncertainty. They join gangs, are obese, have underage sex, watch porn, drink and are a menace to society.

But they are also curious, kind, creative and worried about the future. Travelling around the UK, Chloe Combi has visited churches, festivals, gyms, hospitals, mosques, prisons and schools, talking with teenagers from all kinds of backgrounds about their lives, their fears and their dreams.

Told in their voices, Generation Z is a shocking, enlightening and funny portrait of how it feels to be young and what it takes to survive and thrive on the journey to adulthood.

‘I can’t wait to read this because it’s going to be sick and I’m in it, and then I can give it to my mum so she can stop fucking asking me what I’m thinking all the time.’

Kurt, 16, Peterborough
