Kids say (2 ):

ROOKIE is a brilliant, eccentric, satirical, and quirky website 100% dedicated to embracing and loving the existentialism of simply (or not so simply) being a teenage girl. Rookie was created by teenage girls, for teenage girls, and presses the importance of universal love and acceptance of womanhood. Engaging articles are written by a variety of sultry personalities and powerful voices. One writer for the site describes herself as having an "aura of plaid and a soul made of glitter." Daily posts encourage girls to embrace who they are, and demonstrate the value of accepting other girls and their differences -- no matter what. This Indie site is made up of musicians, writers, photographers, and dieticians (who encourage getting that "back-to-school" body back by eating extra-large pizzas with lots of cheese) in a collaborative effort to share the beautiful unique awkwardness of female teenagerdom through stories, movies, music, fashion, and fun.

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.
