Nerds, Druggies, Jocks. If popular media is to be believed, teenage boys in America all fall into one of these three categories. Rather than letting these stereotypes define American boys, journalist Malina Saval crisscrossed the country to interview young men from different cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds. In engaging prose, Saval reveals the confessions, sadness, optimism, and seemingly boundless resilience of male adolescents today. And she asks the pertinent questions: Who are these boys? What do they think of themselves? Their answers encourage us to reconsider how young people think, dream, and live.
A compelling and uncensored look at teens in the twenty-first century, The Secret Lives of Boys uncovers what our young people want you to know.

About the Author:

Malina Saval has written for publications such as Glamour, the Jerusalem Post, the Los Angeles Times,, Heeb, Variety, and LA Weekly, where The Secret Lives of Boys first appeared as a cover story. She lives with her family in Los Angeles, California.
