The book looks to music for inspiration, chronicling 158 stories written by WriteGirl mentees about identity and dreams, relationships and challenges, midnight phone calls with friends and international adventures.

Did you know...
...50 of our girls graduated high school last year. And do you know how many of them are going to college? All of them. That’s right, for over a decade, WriteGirl has continued its outstanding tradition of ensuring that 100% of our girls go to college. Read some of our success stories.
At WriteGirl, we match girls with women writers who mentor them in creative writing. Every year, we produce dozens of workshops, panel discussions and special events to help girls get creative, get through high school and get to college!
