For tweens and teens, growing up is hard enough. When you're bombarded with images of perfect, beautiful people and a violent, noisy world, finding your own moral compass can be difficult. Magazines try to define beauty for us, while video games condone violence. Movies uphold stereotypes, and according to your favorite television show, everybody is drinking and hooking up. Mixed Messages can help you navigate through the complicated web of information that is thrown at you every day. For all you budding pop culture junkies, this is your survival guide.
