Ten edgy stories from the streets of Britain and the US, inspired by the pressures of being a twenty-first century boy. Teenage boys are trouble. It's in the news, on the front page - everywhere you look they're doing drugs, messing with knives, terrorizing communities.
But what if it's become a self-fulfilling prophecy? What if you're 13, an OK kid in a bad life? What if you're more urban poet than ganster rapper? What if deep-down you want to make your mum proud, but you've got to live up to your rep, be a bro, beat or be beaten?
Gangs. Hoodies. Young offenders. How do you be a boy in a world that's already got you tagged?
