Sixteen-year-old fashion blogger Gevinson founded the online magazine Rookie in 2011. This impeccably designed book compiles essays, photographs, and interviews that appeared in Rookie during its first year, covering dating, music, fashion, sexuality, pop culture—basically, life. High-profile contributors and interviewees include Miranda July, Zooey Deschanel, John Waters, and Joss Whedon. Many books for teenagers encourage independence and self-awareness, but few do so with this much honesty, humor, and style, whether offering tips on thrift-store best practices, getting out of a bad romance, or making killer “bitchfaces” (“for reacting to varying levels of stupidity”). It’s a lucky teen who receives this book as a gift, and a smart one who picks it up for herself. Ages 12–up. (Sept.)
