Product Description


"Though the fashion world is accustomed to both youth and eccentricity, Tavi is a rare spectacle. Seeing her moving through the scrum backstage at a fashion show, elaborately costumed and surrounded by paparazzi, brings to mind a religious procession involving a Buddhist child deity." - Lizzi Widdicombe, The New Yorker

"The future of journalism." - Lady Gaga

About the Author

Witty, sensitive, and smart. This book and the blog that was its foundation are a great counterpoint to the typical media aimed at teenage girls.

Rookie: Everything That's Great About Being a Teenage Girl (and help for the stuff that isn't) Sept. 4 2012
By Erin McKean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Rookie is Sassy turned up to 11, decorated with glitter and googly eyes, and completely devoid of condescension. It is one of the few things that would make being forced back into adolescence, Freaky-Friday style, tolerable. It is lifesaving for teen girls and a completely unguilty pleasure for everyone who once was a teen girl (or who ever knew a teen girl). You should buy this book, and then you should record a heartfelt four-minute YouTube monologue about it (ukelele optional).

Every Girl Should Read This Sept. 4 2012
By D. E. Dickerson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I LOVE Rookie! It's funny. Smart. Interesting. Totally authentic, and put together by a combination of real teenage girls and women who care about girls expressing themselves. If you liked Sassy back in the day, this is an upgrade, and we've totally needed it! Buy, buy, buy! And share with everyone so they can see it and be jealous. The Rookie Yearbook is a total delight and I'm glad it's around.

Even if you are 56 Oct. 2 2012
By SuZee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are, like me, a 56 year old feminist, I just want you to know that you are NOT too old for this yearbook. It has great stuff--an interview with John Waters! David Sedaris! Wonderful pictures, lessons on how to bitchface, Lena Dunham, how to do mod eye make up, awesome stickers. Anna Faris has the best advice for surviving high school: Lay Low.

Oh, and lots of very bright and insightful writing by some powerful young women, women like us. No, we aren't teen age girls anymore but we will forever be trying to untangle the knot that was adolescence. Still tear up when hearing Adele's Someone Like You when you're alone in the car? Still secretly drawn to glitter? Still try on those platforms at TJ Maxx when no one is looking?

This book is for you.

And a word to the publishers, activate the "look inside" function--I think if people could see the table of contents they would get really interested.

Rookie of the Year Sept. 4 2012
By David Smay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The very best source for teen writing on the internet now in easily portable, tactile, paper product book form. I saw the Rookie Road Trip when it hit San Francisco and it was the most heartening thing to see these girls find each other. What an explosion of color and style and personality. The writing is smart, sharp, lively and personal. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
It's full of prizes and surprises. I don't think a book quite like this has ever existed before. That makes it really exciting.
