An in-depth exploration of the relationship between adolescent risk-taking and peer group culture, based on extensive interviews with teens themselves, this elegantly written book shows that taking risks is a natural and necessary part of growing up. The author proposes that risks are declarations of the self, worn like badges of autonomy, or defiance, or group membership.
