"The future of democracy depends on how today’s young people learn to use, share, and produce the news. Clark and Marchi offer an impressive theoretical framework and rich and insightful narratives of actual youth to diagnose the current crisis and propose solutions.'–Peter Levine, Associate Dean and Lincoln Filene Professor, Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life, Tufts University, and author, We are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For: The Promise of Civic Renewal in America
For any parent out there who is anxious about your child’s use of social media: this book is for you. The Parent App provides important insight into the role of technology in contemporary middle class family life, combining the perspectives of parents and youth in order to highlight where there are tensions and confusion. Using a delightful mix of narrative and analysis, Clark invites parents to understand what is unfolding so that they don’t feel so trapped".–danah boyd, Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research and author, It's Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens.
