The second edition of Teen Ink captures the essence of what it means to be a teenager through honest voices that reverberate with the emotional highs and lows of teenage years. It is a diverse collection of prose, poetry, fiction and art representing the compelling moments that define teens' lives. Pieces for this book were chosen from a collection of more than 300,000 submissions to TeenInk magazine, a nonprofit publication read by 3.5 million teens nationwide. Since its inception, TeenInk (formerly The 21st Century) has published more than 25,000 students. These young authors produce fresh, creative, honest and always compelling words that make TeenInk the standard for teen expression.
Subsequent books in this extraordinary series will focus on individual topics, exploring the extraordinary feelings and opinions of today's teens.
