<a href="http://www.amazon.com/Red-Teenage-Girls-America-Write/dp/0452289831/"><em>RED: The Next Generation of American Writers—Teenage Girls—On What Fires Up Their Lives Today</em></a>, edited by Amy Goldwasser, is a collection<br />
of personal essays, on everything from politics to pop culture and body image, written by 58 girls, ages 13 to 19, from across the country. Every one of the authors has her own blog at <a href="http://redthebook.com">redthebook.com</a>. <em><br />
Vanity Fair</em> calls RED "unsparingly frank and perceptive," and <em>Eat, Pray, Love</em> author Elizabeth Gilbert says of the book, "It's high time people stopped writing, talking, and worrying about teenage girls and let these girls speak for themselves." <br />
They're thrilled to be doing so for the <em>Huffington Post</em> and are currently adapting the book for theater and leading writing workshops across the country. RED was published by Penguin imprint Hudson Street Press in November 2007; it will be available in paperback from Plume the week before the presidential election.
