Sample Book Insights:
#1 The image of teenage girls giggling at the mall is outdated. Today, adolescence contains far fewer in-person consolations and torments that once filled the everyday life of teenage girls.
#2 The iPhone was released in 2007. By 2018, 95 percent of teens had access to a smartphone, and 45 percent reported being online almost constantly. Tumblr, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube all host a wide array of visual tutorials and pictorial inspiration to self-harm.
#3 The effects of social media on teenage girls are clear: it makes them anxious and sad, and they are far less likely to take risks than previous generations.
#4 The internet never gives these adolescents a day of reprieve. They are anxious and depressed, and they feel like they are missing out on the fun that should be theirs. They have never been sexually active, and they have never had a kiss with a boy or girl.
