Review: A magazine for girls. All about the things that go on in girls lives. This is a wonderful magazine for tween girls. It covers coming of age issues, such as things about the female body or everyday personal life issues, such as how to deal with a close family member having cancer. Each issue has a short stories that a young girl wrote. There are no advertisements! Magazines without advertisements are hard to come by, but this one did it. Tween girls will love reading interviews of their favorite authors or what other girls there age have to say on the subject of what is unfair about being a girl. A lot of good content in a short amount of pages.

Reader’s Advisory: This is a great magazine for young girls ages 8-12 mostly. It covers a lot of good information that girls should know when growing up and it DOES NOT have any advertisements. I hate magazines that are filled with advertisements. It is a bi-monthy release date. I highly recommend this to all young girls.
