Last year a trio of memoirs were published, written by real teen girls about their experiences. They were Marni, Chelsey, and Emily, and are about a wide assortment of issues. This year, three more will published, and among them is Rae, a memoir by fellow book blogger Chelsea from The Page Flipper!
