The lives of today's teenagers are very similar. Most teenagers today want freedom, money, and chances to be able to spread their wings, per say. Many teenagers today are scrounging around, looking for age appropriate jobs that could give them money. That was the whole point of it really; working for money so they didn't have to depend on their parents anymore. It was to prove that they were capable of being on their own.
In the city of Raleigh, Wisconsin, the big mall known as the Baytown Galleria, there you will see most of this generations teenagers there. Mainly from Raleigh High School, you will see the students shopping, working, or there just to be. Raleigh High School being a small school, everyone knows everything about everyone. From break-ups, to hook-ups, to family problems, all of it was known. All of this causing huge rivalries, cliques to form, everything that could start up trouble.
Since everyone works so close to each other, anything could happen. Relationships can form, enemies can appear, even new friends. Even in a mall in rural Raleigh, anything can happen.
