Rookiemag.com is a website created by and for young women to make the best of the beauty, pain and awkwardness of being a teenager. When it becomes tough to appreciate such things, we have good plain fun and visual pleasure. When you're sick of having to be happy all the time, we have lots of rants, too. Every school year, we compile the best from the site into a print yearbook. Behold: our Freshman year!
In Rookie Yearbook One, we explore breakups, love, feminism, street harassment, being happy, being sad, and other life-related topics. Featuring contributions from and interviews with Rookie heroes like Daniel Clowes, Zooey Deschanel, Lena Dunham, Sky Ferreira, Jack Black, Anna Faris, Fred Armisen, Patton Oswalt, Paul Feig, Miranda July, Aubrey Plaza, Dan Savage, David Sedaris, Sarah Silverman, John Waters and Joss Whedon. Plus extra goodies like playlists, DIYs and stickers!
