Editorial Reviews

"Irreverent, honest, and wholly affirming, this is a book that teen girls will cherish." - School Library Journal "Many books for teenagers encourage independence and self-awareness, but few do so with this much honesty, humor, and style . . . It''s a lucky teen who receives this book as a gift, and a smart one who picks it up for herself." - Publishers Weekly "To say that [ Rookie Yearbook One ] is the essential companion to navigating your teen years, is an understatement."­­ - Hello Giggles "In short: [ Rookie Yearbook One ] rules." - Bust " Yearbook is as impressive as it is inspiring and entertaining." - Vice
