The authors explore young peopleAEs lives and experiences, services provided for young people, and the experiences of those who work with youth. This innovative anthology covers issues such as incest, anorexia and bulimia nervosa, and racism and violence, but also includes essays by those who have survived and built upon similar experiences.
