This chapter introduces four teens included in this study. They were chosen because their stories are interesting in their own right and because their stories allow the book to introduce important themes and interpretations that are discussed systematically in later chapters. These are Poppy Lopez, a teen who expressed boredom with life in suburbia; Lowanda Smith, a NJ High socialite; Rob Robertson, a community-engaged, intellectually curious, athletically gifted, self-confident, and politically conscious individual; and Kristi Kramer, a teen who did not fit in with any of the cliques in her high school.

Keywords:   American teenagers, high school seniors, cultural worlds, cliques
