'An important and timely book. These are voices that need to be heard.' - Anthony Horowitz
The world is changing by the day. Today's teenagers are growing up in a world of widening social inequality, political apathy and economic uncertainty.
They join gangs, and are kind.
They're obese, and they're more health-conscious than any generation before.
They have underage sex, and they're less likely to get pregnant young.
They drink, and they go teetotal.
They watch porn, and they shun it.
They go to church, and they have no religion.
They're a menace to society. They are society.
Curious, creative and worried about the future, Generation Z have grown up in a world of unprecedented connection, and ever-increasing division. Chloe Combi has travelled around the UK, talking with teenagers from all kinds of backgrounds about their lives, their fears and their dreams, uncovering some truly surprising stories about a generation often stereotyped and dismissed.
Told in their voices, Generation Z is a shocking, enlightening and funny portrait of how it feels to be young in modern Britain, and what it takes to survive and thrive on the journey to adulthood.

An important and timely book. These are voices that need to be heard. -- Anthony Horowitz
The book gives educators much to consider . . . The greatest value of GENERATION Z is a reminder of all that we love about our students - their humanity, their kindness, their moments of strength, their insights. It's easy to see the echoes of students in our own classrooms; beyond the disrupters, preeners and attention-seekers, there are human beings going through tremendous changes. I found it a refreshing, confronting and heartfelt reminder of why I came into the classroom. * Times Educational Supplement *
An important and deeply revealing book showcasing what it is really like to be a teenager in the twenty-first century. -- Boris Johnson
Thrillingly candid interviews with 'Generation Z' display all their fixations, their humour, and the frightening power of technology in their pockets. * Newsweek *
