You may have heard this fact before - New Zealand has the highest death rate for teenagers in the developed world. So what is going on in their lives? How do we talk to them? Well perhaps they need to share their own thoughts. 

Been There: Young People's Stories of Struggle and Hope brings together tales from kiwi kids who have been through a crisis, and how they found strength. 

The book is edited by Steve Langley and he's in studio to tell us about gathering these stories. You can find out more about the book here.
