In this series, readers will literally visit the homes and lives of teenagers around the planet, getting a close-up look at what they are going through and how they are thriving and surviving. Each book includes insight from a specific teen, who will guide readers through their everyday lives, using images, texts, emails, and more. Additional information will be provided about the country to supplement the personal details. Readers will come away with a greater knowledge of a distant land, as well as a deeper understanding of a life that could have been theirs, save for the accident of birth.
