Degrassi Generations -Canada and Us Book jackets
When the groundbreaking show, The Kids of Degrassi Street, debuted twenty-five years ago, it was definitely teen television with a difference. The characters were refreshingly, astonishingly real and fans immediately saw themselves in the series’ true-to-life storylines. Legions of teens followed the students through Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High, and transformed the collective series into Degrassi Classic. Degrassi wasn’t afraid to tackle big issues such as Aids, suicide, teen pregnancy, and interracial relationships. But it also offered glamour-free depictions of the daily mortifications of teenage existence, shopping for your first bra, being the shortest guy in grade seven, having nothing to wear for your school photo.
In 2004, even though Spike’s giant hairdo has long gone out of style, the Degrassi Classic series continues to resonate with viewers across North America and around the world, from Sweden to Australia. And the 2001 launch of Degrassi: The Next Generation has introduced thousands of new viewers, young and old alike, to the Halls of Degrassi.
Now, for the first time ever, a lavishly illustrated book about Degrassi, written by Degrassi insider, takes fans behind the scenes of one of televisions most successful on-going teen series. Degrassi Generation is the ultimate fan book and a remarkable history of all the kids of Degrassi Street.
