    One thought on “Rookie Yearbook One”

    1. Things that Rookie did for MY LIFE: *Made my time at the toilet much more fun. *Turned me into a solid feminist with solid arguments. (I used to be just a quiet voice for equality. It sounds counterproductive, as if Rookie made of me one of those "ew boys suck" fourth graders, but what I really mean is that I now know things about women's situation that I wasn't previously aware about, such as our increased vulnerability to sexual harassment, the way many times people judge women more violently [...]

    2. So many feelings about this one, guys. I'm a 33 year-old woman, and I feel like the stuff I learned from this book has helped me for when I turn 34 in a few weeks. That being said, I wish I'd had access to this when I was 13 going-on-14 back in 1993/4, a time period which Rookie openly fetishizes (which doesn't make me feel a bit OLD at ALL…and a bit flattered as well). Girls these days have got it so good. And so bad. One half of me is super-jealous for all the access to music and culture tha [...]

    3. Oh my, almost as soon as I opened this up and started reading, I got shivery goosebumps. This is exactly what I always wanted to read as a teenager.

    4. In the end though, what kept me reading, what I kept not being able to get over, was this uncompromising, very specific expectation of and demand for consideration and respect. Tavi and her ladies understand what it is to be female in this culture - they embrace the girliness (to varying degrees), and they articulate very clearly how girls can enjoy their femininity while maintaining a firm grasp on the nature of true beauty. While they acknowledge that watching fashion can be a really fun hobby [...]

    5. Literally the best thing ever. You should all read it, and then buy copies for everybody you know and everybody you've ever met ever. Just saying.

    6. Rookie Yearbook One features highlights from Rookie's first school year of existence, September 2011 to May 2012. Though I am definitely older than the intended audience (it's for teenagers; I'm 32) it was still a satisfying read. It's a mixture of advice pieces, personal essays, and other stuff from a mixture of teen and adult writers, on subjects including how to deal with a bad day, how to talk to your crush, racism, female masturbation, the male gaze, and street harassment. There are intervi [...]

    7. This book is HUUUUGE but real talk: I'll probably read it in three days.Ok, I finished it! Like I said, this book is huge, and if you're a regular reader of Rookie you'll notice that much of the content comes directly from the site, in kind of a best-of of the first year of the website's existence. This is a good thing, as some features were especially nice to revisit (interviews with Daniel Clowes and John Waters), and much of the art and layout has been reimagined in order to be more appropria [...]

    8. I would give my left boob to have had ROOKIE around when I was a teenager. I'm in my early 20s, but Rookie is still a fantastic guide to navigating your developing years as a girl. Inside this massive, fun, beautiful tome:- How to make a paper crown- How to throw a punch- Why Joni Mitchell is Literally the Best Thing Ever- A playlist for falling in love- A playlist for getting over a crush- First encounters with street harassment- How to bargain at a thrift store- SO. MUCH. MORE.If you know a te [...]

    9. I cannot wait until we order this for our library's teen room. Here are some of my thoughts on this book (though my only complaint is the lack of plus-sized models in the yearbook. What's the deal with that?):magpielibrarian.wordpress/gpielibrarian.wordpress/

    10. This book is so greatttttt. I wish I could give it to my own teen self but I am so happy I can give it to other teen girls and show them that it is okay to love things and okay to be and like yourself (and that there will be times you don't, but it's okay -- you'll get through it).

    11. i think the best way to describerookie magis this: i wish i had read it back when i was twelve or thirteen. there is so, so much good in this book that my young self could have benifitted from as an awkward and confused preteen. so many topics are explored that as a preteen/young teenager i had a multitude of questions about that i could never ask a parent or friend- body image, sex, masturbation, menstruation. i'd assume an unquenched anxious curiousity on these subjects is a universal constant [...]

    12. Much smarter and hipper than anything else, magazine-wise, for teenage girls. Definitely fills a void. However, it was not my void. I don't believe I have ever been or desired to be this cool, this sort of fashionable and idealistic and ambitious (the kind with a lot of self-aware pink florals in it) and frankly now that I have recently turned thirty, I wonder if, in fact, I was ever this young. Rookie is fantastic, don't get me wrong, I just wish there were even more choices and voices out ther [...]

    13. This collection of articles, interviews, and photo shoots from the first year of the ROOKIE website is like an opulent coffee table book for teenage girls. I felt a little guilty reading this because I'm a grown-up lady, but it's a really beautifully designed book. The gorgeous collages by Sonja Ahlers alone are worth the price of admission. Because I am a grown up I prefer the interviews and how-to and art pieces over the practical "what to do if everyone at school hates you" type articles, but [...]

    14. Love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love. I don't care how old you are; read Rookie all day, every day.

    15. I still shake my head and sigh when I think of all those old issues of Sassy I threw away. This book helps. A little.

    16. 3.5rookie is an amazing website that i wish had been started just a bit earlier so that i would have had it as a resource during my teenage years. instead, reading this collection of articles from their first year becomes nostalgic and almost makes me wish i was back in high school exploring my ~carefree~ and artsy feminist side. lil bit of an awkward moment when tavi recommends watching woody allen movies but ignoring articles abt his personal life, but she was a teenager and i certainly hope s [...]

    17. This was really good! I'm a fan of the website, so it was really great to see the articles in print. It's really colourful and beautiful, and the illustrations are gorgeous. The photo shoots are all really interesting as well. I was lucky enough to get a signed copy by Tavi and I wasn't expecting it when I ordered it so it was really cool.

    18. I will always fiercely support Tavi/Rookie, and all women writers/artists but I’m finally feeling like I’ve had my fill of these books. Also, I am two for two when it comes to checking them out from the library while they still have the cute stickers or cut outs, etc. in them 💞

    19. 3.5 StarsThis would have spoken to the younger me in high school, who felt starved for creativity and exploration in art in my small town. As someone a bit older, it still made me those things, but I found myself flipping past the essays I didn’t need anymore.You did great Tavi ✨

    20. I really wish I had this when I was a teenager. No-nonsense advice from a wide variety of perspectives. I thought this would mostly be about fashion, but it's more about life, with essays that are still very much worth reading in my late twenties.

    21. In the book, “Rookie Yearbook One “, is a book that analyzes high school, friends, love, breakups, depressions, and other topics related to life. It describes what it is like to deal with these things and how to face them the right way. It is basically guide on what not to do. What is really interesting about this book is it gives you insider from real life experiences. It discuss real life events that happened that were very embarrassing but were helpful to learn from. In my opinion, I tho [...]

    22. I have heard of Tavi Gevinson and Rookie magazine. Maybe even checked the website out before but it never really appealed to me. It has always been at the back of my mind that Tavi is a rolemodel who achieved much in such a short span of time but I could not relate to her. Until a Youtuber who I like recommended Yearbook 3 as a gift for feminists individuals. So I thought of giving Yearbook 1 a try before I decided whether I wanted to continue reading. On first glance the style of the book and v [...]

    23. Get this book for any teen girl you know. Tavi’s online zine, Rookie Mag, has been collecting accolades since the fifteen-year-old blogger started it from her Midwestern bedroom. Tavi has been a respected style blogger since 2008, when she began her fashion blog Style Rookie at the tender age of eleven. Since then, she’s been invited to attend and review fashion shows all over the world, but it’s not just clothes anymore; this clever writer and all-around gifted young woman has created a m [...]

    24. I strongly believe that "Rookie year book" is the most attractive book for girls.First of all, there are lots of cute pictures and illustrations. This book consists of articles, interviews, illustrations, and pictures. Some of pictures are related to article like how to make up or costume ideas for some events. It is little hard to imitate, but these pictures made me want to try it. Also, it will give you much inspiration. There are many kind of pictures. For example, some are focused on school [...]

    25. Okay so I'll start off by saying that i have never before in my life written a review for a book. So hopefully I can find a way to string together words that correctly describe how much this book means to me. I have always been a girl that reads others personal stories about something that I'm curious about so, obviously, this book was a "must read" for me. I bought this book on a trip to Oregon right before we were about to drive back home to Washington. I had seen it on tumblr and mainly, this [...]

    26. If Rookie had been around when I was thirteen it would have been my religious text. Rookie Yearbook One is a compilation of essays from the website of the same name (rookiemag) which explores every teenage-life-related topic. The visionary behind it all is Tavi Gevinson. I discovered Tavi when I saw a video on YouTube of her speaking at a conference. She was eloquent, thoughtful, incredibly insightful, a little quirky, and very relatable. I had to know more. Book one celebrates the "freshman yea [...]

    27. When I was the age Gevinson was when she started this, I was making 'zines by hand and mailing them to penpals around the country; I was scavenging beaten copies of literary journals and whatever "alternative" magazines I could get my hands on, furtively buying copies of Bitch and McSweeney's; poring over the ever-growing communities on the internet trying to find something I aligned with. (The definition of "alternative" in rural southern Tennessee being rather wider in those days.) But I wonde [...]

    28. Rookie Yearbook One is a treasure chest book full of badass intelligent writing, DIY and art that makes you want to create things and go out and be awesome. It celebrates girlhood and life and everything in between, and even if you're not a teenage girl a lot of the writing will inspire you and remind you of Very Imporant Life Lessons in the midst of the Messiness of Life. Rookie's mantra basically comes down to: you are awesome just the way you are so continue being yourself, but it is never co [...]
