Get Sassy!

If you were a teenage girl, coming of age in a modern world during those weird days we call the 1990s, then you were probably consulting the pages of Sassy magazine. For me, Sassy provided me with the real deal while Seventeen, YM, and 'Teen played it a little safe. Don't get me wrong, I loved all those magazines, but Sassy had the extra oomph of cool. From 1988 to 1994, Sassy's message was front and center: being who you are is cool enough! Raise your hand if you still own that beloved Kurt & Courtney issue from April 1992?

Sassy fans, unite! Marisa Meltzer and Kara Jesella know how much Sassy ruled, and have written a book about it. HOORAY! This April, How Sassy Changed My Life: A Love Letter to the Greatest Teen Magazine of All Time will be released via Faber and Faber. For more bad assness, check out their MySpace page!
