July 1990 Teen Life: Road Trips, Boyfriend Fights & Inverted Nipples

Start listening

We’re diving into a new issue and…finding horror, unfortunately. Catherine interviews a girl whose high school boyfriend murdered her parents. Help offers painful-sounding advice to a letter writer looking to turn out her inverted nipples. AND Kim, Karen, and Mike are staying in low-end hotels?! Okay, that last one was a joke; their road trip sounds pretty fun. And there’s a lot to love in the issue’s teen life topics, from great advice about fighting with a partner to a contest-winning fiction story from a future bestselling author to a whole new column: Help For Him! Take a break from trying to run a ten-minute mile and join us!
