RED: Teenage Girls in America Write On What Fires Up Their Lives Today

This book is written by the bravest authors you’ll ever read—58 real teenage girls.

In RED: Teenage Girls in America Write On What Fires Up Their Lives Today (Plume / November 2008 / $14.00 / 978-0-452-28983-3), editor Amy Goldwasser brings together 58 of today’s most compelling young writers, ages 13-19. The authors explode the fluffy pink stereotypes through their own words.

Most honest documentarians of their lives, these girls will amaze anyone who is—or ever was—a teenage girl. And they will make the teenage girl that much less inscrutable to anyone who’s trying to parent, teach, admire, step out of the way of, or otherwise figure her out.

These authors are the best shades of red (not pink): a little bit angry, a lot passionate, and deeply invested in their causes. RED is 58 real teenage girls writing on 58 real teenage lives. Their stories are for every girl out there who thinks she’s alone and for every adult who’s dared to try to understand her. Touching, hopeful, often hilarious—always real—and many times heartbreaking—they write on everything from Johnny Depp to post-Katrina New Orleans. These girls are on fire and their essays speak gloriously for the future.

Visit, a social networking site where every one of RED’s 58 authors has her own daily blog and readers can connect with them and follow the continued, living version of their stories, as well as check out their other writing, videos, photos, and catch up with the RED tour.

AMY GOLDWASER is a freelance editor and writer for publications including Elle, Seventeen, The New Yorker, and The New York Times. She lives in New York City, where she teaches editing in the Columbia Publishing Course and writing at the Lower Eastside Girls Club.
THE AUTHORS OF RED are cultural and political commentators for The Huffington Post, playwrights adapting RED for theater, nationally published editorial page writers, and leaders of peer-to-peer workshops across the country. Their daily blogs, videos, photos, and more are at
