Guns are a fact of life for young people growing up in the United States. They are found in homes—for protection, sport, and hunting. Guns are also on the street—for defense and security, and in gang-related uses. Guns can cause accidents, and even deaths, while they can also nurture self-esteem and athletic abilities. The impact of guns on young people’s lives is undebatable—and often dramatic.

S. Beth Atkin’s evocative photographs and candid interviews share the remarkable stories—told in their own voices—of an array of young people’s life-changing experiences with guns.

“Excellent for classroom discussion as teens seek to extract fact from opinion…Buy more than one copy; you’ll need backup.” “For students involved in the debate about guns in our culture as well as for those with a general interest…” “A thoughtful and worthy effort that takes both issue and readership seriously.” “Atkin presents a balanced view of the pros and cons and allows readers to come to their own conclusions.” “Exceptional…The book is more than a resource, it’s also a page–turning read in its own right.”
