On the Cover

By Stephanie Lynn, age 24, Massachusetts

On the cover this month we are excited to feature the clay art of Jennifer, age 21, from Kentucky. Jennifer designs adorable robots, animals, and other imaginative figures from polymer clay. I interview Jennifer in my feature "Robots, Giraffes, and Superheroes", which I recommend to everyone who either likes to create things or has thought about her own online business. Jennifer started at age 14, and is now a college student, that is, when she isn't creating the most amazing ... well, read about it for yourself!! :D

This month's issue features 24 new articles and poems. April means prom is just around the corner, and Kate (NH) takes us on her quest for the dress. If Jennifer's story isn't inspiring enough, we spotlight some teen jewelry makers who are making an impression on Etsy. Miley has inspired Kate (CA) with her latest song, and Libby & Mckayla offer reviews of a book series & TV show totally worth checking out.

On the serious side, Mona deals with her alcohol issue, Kimberly looks back at her suicide attempt, and Melissa says goodbye to her BFF who took her life. And Tess tells the story of a friend who rolls out the welcome mat for her guy ... unfortunately, she's the doormat.
