Two high schools, four young men, and an infinite number of possibilities for the lives ahead of them. Writer Jeff Hobbs spent time getting to know four young men about to graduate from high school in Los Angeles, trying to find a sense of self and a workable plan for what comes next.

Jeff Hobbs's book is Show Them You're Good: A Portrait of Boys in the City of Angels the Year Before College.

The author joins us for a perusal of his work, and a sketch of the four people he watched launch into the future.
