CAROLINA CROW GIRL
By Valerie Hobbs
Valerie Hobbs is a well-respected author of numerous young adult novels. She is recognized for her ability to infuse her characters with remarkably authentic thoughts, motivations, and behaviors that realistically capture the life experiences of young people as they move from child to teen to young adult. Carolina Crow Girl is a splendid example of this ability, and explores the themes of culture and diversity, character, values and friendship with sensitivity and respect. Carolina is not looking forward to starting sixth grade at a new school and being the new girl again. This time, she decides she’ll say her father is an astronaut, lost in space. She’s learned to cope with the uncomfortable routine of standing in front of the class, introducing herself, and telling about her family by creating fantastical versions of a non-existent father. Anything’s better than telling the class she lives in an old yellow school bus with her single mother, Melanie, and baby sister, Trinity. And anyway, it won’t be long before Melanie has them on the move again, in her endless search for Trinity’s father, Red. But this time, things happen differently. Carolina takes on the care of a baby crow after finding it on the ground below its nest. And she meets Stefan Crouch, whose family owns the land on which Melanie has parked their bus. Carolina becomes fond of her new home, and as her friendship with Stefan grows, his family offers an alternative to moving on with her mother and sister. As she considers the family’s offer, Carolina must come to terms with her own beliefs about freedom, family and belonging.

This episode is a rebroadcast of a previous show - "Self Worth of Young Girls and the Media" Is the self-worth of young people, particularly young women determined by the media?
When we watch any music video, television shows, or read any of the fashion magazines, we can clearly see that the media is not very kind to girls. Today, the expectations to look a certain way are totally wild and unrealistic.
Listen again and ask questions, let us know what your think.. Email us at Youngmediacritics@gmail.com
Hear from the Young Media Critics why body image matters for girls!
Have you ever wondered about your life purpose? Why are we here? What are we really supposed to be doing? There’s good news is God has a purpose for your life.

Nell Simmons - R&B Artist 2:15pm
Phenomenal Singer who has been blazing the scene as of late. One of the most powerful voices in the world this woman will blow you away. If you were to ask Nell who she is and what she contributes to the industry Nell says "I am something of the opposite having come to the industry only recently and largely in isolation." My story is about someone who came to make music later in life and had to do so using modern desktop technology and the internet to produce and promote more out of necessity than anything else. I think I can provide some insights for other emerging artists trying to find their way in the modern music industry.
