On the cover this month ... it's a cupcake! I know, you were expecting to see a face, you know, one of our amazing writers. Amazing writer, next month.

In May we're featuring Jill, 24, from Florida, who has started her own online business called the "Stay Calm Cupcake Shop". If you've ever had an idea, a dream, a thought of starting your own business, you might want to read about Jill.* Read the interview!

To change the subject, this is one of our best issues ever. I especially want to call your attention to 5 remarkable stories in this issue to read and tell your friends about:

♥ Teens Have More Fun!
♥ Better to Have Loved and Lost
♥ The Calming Closet
♥ The "Other" Girl
♥ Hunger Pains

Have a wonderful Spring, successful final exams, and to those graduating, I wish you my very best for the future. Summer is almost here! Enjoy! :)

~ Stephanie Lynn
