Our treat for October (as the spine line promises) is a brand-new issue, and we’re starting things off by discussing its Teen Life topics! Catherine goes to a weight loss camp and collects insights from her fellow female staffers on how to ask out dudes. Karen facilitates as three readers make over their bedrooms in very different styles. Christina returns to the fiction department with a cautionary tale about jelly beans. All that, plus Body Talk; a BUNCH of Help letters from readers signing themselves “Confused”; and a Stuff You Wrote submission that is…not in good taste. Pour yourself a bowl of jelly beans and listen!
