Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"People seem to recognize that Tavi Gevinson is doing great things for girls. The truth is actually much more impressive: She is doing great things. Adults need not turn to Rookie out of nostalgia or to experience catharsis. Read it because it is singular."—Slate

“Irreverent, honest, and wholly affirming, this is a book that teen girls will cherish.” —School Library Journal

“In short: [Rookie Yearbook One] rules.” —Bust

Gr 7 Up—Brimming with the social and cultural insights that made the first volume so remarkable, Rookie Yearbook Two anthologizes the best of the online magazine's June 2012—May 2013 offerings, and it does so with a style, wit, and panache that surpass the original. Gevinson has produced a vibrant, playful chronicle of today's youth that beautifully captures their minds and spirits in lavish detail. Filled with a dizzying amount of photographs, illustrations, and collages, the visual impact of the artwork and design is irresistible, providing the readers with an abundance of vintage cut-outs, pop art, and densely layered images to explore. The inclusion of extras, such as sticker pages and punch-out cards, add to the whimsy. If this was all that the Yearbook contained, it could easily be written off as inconsequential fluff, but the anthology is more than just eye candy: it contains smart, sassy, and shrewd articles and interviews that resonate. Whether examining standard teen fare such as "The Complete Guide to Kissing" and (un)popularity ("On the Outside Looking Out") or interviewing iconic musicians like Carrie Brownstein and Morrissey, the writers, with their distinct voices and points-of-view, connect with their subjects and make them instantly relatable to their audience. Even the themed playlists that appear throughout the collection provide readers with musical touchstones that may stimulate further exploration. There is something for every reader here.—Audrey Sumser, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Mayfield, OH
