If you could open up to anyone, who would it be and what would you say? Each character in No Generation takes a crack at these questions, and each successive response paints an image of a world that constantly shifts between moments of connection and total alienation. Zee dreads Bugso, a psychopathic hustler who kills street kids for fun. Brent spouts mediocre word poetry that flips seamlessly between video games and modern warfare. Kristina shares the ins and outs of being a B-List celebrity. While a few are only concerned with how they're going to get drugs or sex on a given day, there's also a current of a highly guarded spirituality running throughout the novel's stories. These are people who constantly have their lives branded and sold back to them, and their suspicion runs high when it comes to leaving their thoughts exposed.

The novel features 94 people from all walks: students, bloggers, cops, visionaries, street kids, travelers, teen moms, fundamentalists, occupiers, and a lot more. Some are driven by fear, others by care for the world. Most are trying to be truthful, but no single perspective is necessarily the right one. Indeed, it's a book that's written for a world that's highly diverse and customizable.
