Korean-American teenagers from New Jersey write about their own experiences and reflections in the year 2007. This book, containing 9 essays by Korean-American youths from Junior and Senior High Schools in New Jersey, gives an excellent picture of the hopes and fears of Korean-American youth throughout the United States of America. Korean-American teenage experience is one of being caught between a rock and a hard place. There is the Korean culture that their parents continue to cherish and develop both culturally and socially within the American context and there is the "American" culture they are exposed in their schools and from MTV and mass media. What to do? How to think? What way to go? This book is a look into honest feelings and struggles of Korean-American teenagers frm New Jersey. Esther Hah, the Editor, is a senior from Northern Valley Regional High School-Damarest. located in Bergen County, New Jersey.
