Not Even Surprised That Tavi Gevinson’s New Book Is The Raddest

by Intern Michelle

I tried to fight it, and I tried to deny it, but I can’t. I love Tavi Gevinson (Maybe you’ve heard of her? She was on the cover of some magazine called BUST) . Even more than Tavi, I luuuurve Rookie, which is why I was sure to preorder Rookie Yearbook One. For those of you who don’t know (shame on you!), Rookie was founded a year ago today by Ms. Gevinson to give teen girls content that they weren’t being given in, say, Seventeen or Teen Vogue



Although I’m no longer a teenager, I was instantly captivated by the site’s aesthetic, as well as its poignant personal essays, funny videos, and honest discussions on everything from drugs to masturbation to ice cream. Yes, it’s a wide range of content over there on Rookie. 


The print version of the magazine is packed with inspiring images, stickers that I’ve already put all over my iPhone case,  and how-to guides. In short: It rules. Now, I’m not in the business of telling people want to spend their money on, but ya’ll need to get this book I’m serious. I’m serious about being serious. 


Have you gotten the book yet? Tell me your favorite thing about it!  


P.S. If you’re in New York, Tavi and a bunch of Rookie writers will be at McNally Jackson this Sunday to chat and talk Rookie.
