Seventeen has been around for years. I dont really know how I feel about the magazine; im not in love with it yet I dont think it stinks. Im neutral. This is a magazine for teenage girls (yet there are always random comments by rare boys that also read the magazine), and it talks about everything from beauty to health to sex to fashion. This is plainly a teen read, I dont think anyone above the age of 20 would really appreciate the magazine. They always have a page of freebies (for which you enter on seventeen.com) where you can win oerfume, technology, clothing, etc. They always have hair and makeup tricks as well as fashion advice. Each issue has a different workout routine. They also have real stories (often disturbing) in their real life section that talk about the different experiences of girls today. Its an ok read and you can get it pretty cheap with a good offer (less than a $1 per issue), never pay the cover price!
