About Rookie Yearbook 4:

“Stories and inspiring visuals for girls with old souls.” —Entertainment Weekly 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 Senior year!
In Rookie Yearbook Four, we take a good, long look at stuff like friendship, crushes, speaking out, taking action, and learning about yourself. Our Senior year is full of beautiful art and photographs, playlists, DIY tutorials, advice ranging from how to get over trauma to how to write a college admissions essay, interviews with Rookie role models like Marina and the Diamonds, TLC, Laverne Cox, and FKA twigs, and exclusive content from Willow Smith, Ariana Grande, Solange, Charli XCX, Lorde, Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend, Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine, Hayley Williams of Paramore, and Donna Tartt, PLUS a sticker sheet, posters, pizza banner, teen bedroom diorama, and collage kit. School’s out, but Rookie is immortalized right here, in print, forever.
