We’re back to TEEN LIFE topics, now in the April 1988 issue!
Christina Kelly gets a first-person account from a man whose friend died of AIDS as a teen. Karen Catchpole demystifies what it’s actually like to date a rock star, killing some Beastie Boys crushes in the process. Karen then dares to tell the truth about boys’ bodies — not just the parts in their boxer shorts, though that is admittedly what we’re mostly interested in. And Catherine Gysin prepares readers for how their lives might change after their parents’ divorce.
Christina returns with the Short Short Story “What Sudie Didn’t Tell Me.” On The Road takes a trip to Austin (a place all your co-hosts have lived and loved!). Body Talk moves from Fashion to Teen Life, and with it our comments on its reporting on pap smears, golf, and cross training. Help has some truly wild questions we must pray are fake before closing things out with What He Said: “What do you think of girls who make the first move?”
