Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Mostly, hits its mark. Articles are upbeat, fun, and touch on the wide range of topics that are important to tween and teen girls, from friend jealousy to lip gloss flavors. The articles are a little light on original journalism -- the Fantasia cover story seems pieced together from already-published interviews and another celeb section has no quotes -- but experts wrote some pieces, including one offering monetary advice from a financial advisor. And the magazine gets points for featuring personal essays and women of several different ethnicities in its celebrity sections and fashion shoot.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
