DD wants a subscription to Seventeen Magazine.  I'm looking for a more wholesome alternative.  Something without all the "Looks, boys, shopping, drama!"

 

Any recommendations?

Thanks!

Not sure how old your DD is but if she's in the 12-15 range, American Girl magazine is wonderful.

I'm afraid that might be a bit young.  She's outgrown all her American Girl books and dolls.

Is New Moon Magazine too young as well?  I've heard rave reviews and can't wait until my girl is old enough to read it.

 

I briefly googled and came up with one called TeenVoices that looked really interesting.  There was also a website called www.evemag.com that I would have loved to read through but I'm not sure it was an actual magazine.  I didn't delve too deeply into either website as I didn't have time so I would suggest that you make sure they are appropriate for your teen.
