"Telling Young Lives provides us with thirteen in depth portraits of young people around the globe, as they navigate their way through homelessness, precarious labor, ethnic conflict, religious persecutions and simple everyday challenges of growing up. Told in rich, often lyrical detail, and through the voices of these young people themselves, each narrative is supplemented with suggested additional scholarly readings. Telling Young Lives provides the reader with a compelling introduction into the politics of everyday life as shaped and experienced by contemporary young people. A great read." —Sue Ruddick, Associate Professor of Geography, University of Toronto
