Book notes 361 Dreams’ by a Chicana student who told the story of her family’s ‘journey’ from Mexico to California. It is just one of the many examples that Korina M. Jocson uses in her book Youth Media Matters: Participatory Cultures and Literacies in Education. Each chapter starts with an anecdote related to the main topic that she explores. The key premise the book is built upon is that as the title suggests, youth media matter. Jocson draws upon four separate studies on do-it-yourself production with young people from the San Francisco Bay Area, New York and St. Louis between the ages of 15 and 24. She draws heavily on her own experience in and outside of the classroom. Jocson’s aim is to analyse such practices by adopting an interdisciplinary approach. The target audience is ‘stu- dents, academics, cultural workers, and partners in education (youth and adults alike) interested in youth media and cultural production’ (p. 11). The book is divided into five main chapters. Chapter 1 analyses Californian students’ projects about migration and immigration by using the concept of assemblage – a term borrowed from the language of art, which in the context of digital storytelling refers to
