“A Lasting Impression” in New Moon Girls magazine

My latest story, “A Lasting Impression,” is out now (available here: http://www.newmoon.com/magazine/samples/September-October-2011.pdf until the end of October)!

New Moon Girls is a magazine targeting girls aged 8 and up and is a wholesome alternative to the pressures of typical fashion magazines. The magazine even offers girls the opportunity to work as editors, providing them a taste of responsibility and decision making. As a teacher, I see too many girls feel pressured to “fit in” to standards society has imposed, and I applaud New Moon for working to change that. I’m glad that my story can be a part of their message.
