Whether you were born between 1994 and 2010 [Generation Z] or not, you would find value in reading the insightful conversations in this book that spell out their take on important issues affecting humanity today.
Five teenage friends find themselves at odds with their families, culture and social standing. They find solace within their group. Their choices are shaped by changes within the global economy and exposure to cultural diversity, rapid technological development, and the difficulty of cultivating dependable relationships. The friends nurture the hopes, ideals, and positive qualities in each other, ideals that grow in response to the state of the world economy, the spread of technologies, and generally the turbulent times in which we live.Together they travel to Israel to embark on a one-month working holiday at the Beit Nir Kibbutz, located between the cities of Beit Shemesh and Kiryat Gat. Here they find a meaningful and consistent home with socially and environmentally responsible values. They yearn for work that allows the worker to feel like they are contributing to something bigger than themselves. They socialize with the locals, learning some Hebrew and Arabic, and the history of the Middle East. They immerse themselves in Israeli life and culture, work alongside and engage in dialogues with Jewish Israelis, Israeli-Arabs and Bedouins who are striving for a just and lasting peace. The group tests their friendship and evolved sentiments relevant to global social ills affecting mankind and their generation through conversations, by exploring diverse viewpoints, including the impact of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict and its similarity to, and divergence from, South Africa’s former Apartheid regime. Their search is for new ways to learn from today to better prepare for the future.But there is much more at play here than just creating boundaries between old and new philosophies: in deciphering the enmeshed friendship bond within the troupe, the intention is to engender a metamorphic and ground-breaking leap of mind-sets.
Be assured, tapping into conversations with GenZ will spark big ideas!

‘Mike’ to his friends and family, Michael HH Warren began writing about his life during the South African winter of 2009. Driven by a strong desire to tell his story, what began as a creative outlet would eventually become his first book, In The Name Of God. The writing bug has bitten, and Michael has written several books. A far cry from his memoir, these books are aimed at teens/young adults who represent Generation Z (GenZ), as they wrestle and attempt to come to terms with an often hostile and unforgiving world. These books offer them hope and guidance. Still having a passion for the world of non-fiction, Michael has several ideas presently evolving into draft manuscripts for publication late in 2016 or the first half of 2017, all things being equal.
