Lost in transition by Christian Smith, Kari Christoffersen, Hilary Davidson and Patricia Snell Herzog, OUP, US $27.95
Emerging adulthood is not always a period of glory days, when young people savour the freedom and fun of their youth. This book illuminates the darker side of the years from the late teens through the early twenties. Based on rich in-depth interviews with 18-23-year-olds, the authors argue that the difficulties of emerging adults arise not from any inherent features of the age, and still less from any moral failures, but from what society provides and fails to provide adolescents.
