“I want to build a shrine to this book. It explores and debunks high school cliches and understands the language only teenage feelings speak. Its three narrators make a unique story not only to experience vicariously, but relatable. It will sit on my shelf next to a My So-Called Life box set and copies of The Virgin Suicides and Girl, Interrupted.”
—Tavi Gevinson, editor in chief, Rookie

I’m in my room right now facing Chris Ware’s new graphic novel, “Building Stories,” which includes a quotation from Pablo Picasso that says, “Everything you can imagine is real.” That was a weirdly empowering thought for me, because so much of my experience as a person is dreaming of what I wish everything could be. It somehow gives validity to the act of yearning for something. I’ve been obsessed with all these things about the teenage experience for years before I even was a teenager, so I had a lot of expectations about what teenage existence should be. And I think I’ve somehow found a way to consider listening to music and daydreaming as valid an experience as the real ones most of us miss out on.

Who would win in a Bitchface contest? Enid from Ghost World or our Editor-in-Chief, Tavi Gevinson? It’s a pretty close call IMHO, but I’d prefer to learn from the master Tavi, and the instructional manual found in our new book, Rookie Yearbook One. You can get it here!
