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.

When talking about sexuality and young people in our culture, we are much more comfortable discussing disasters (teen pregnancy, for example), disease (HIV and other STIs), and dysfunction (coercive sex, etc.). It's much easier for us to talk about what we DON'T want for our kids' sex lives than about what we DO want. In my work with parents, we ultimately get to the hope that kids:
Will appreciate their own bodies
Will express love and intimacy in appropriate ways
Will enjoy sexual feelings without necessarily acting on them
Will practice health prevention, such as regular checkups and breast or testicular self-exams
When they are mature enough to act on their feelings, will talk with a partner about sexual activity before it occurs, including sexual limits (theirs and their partner's), contraceptive and condom use, and the meaning of the relationship and of relationships, in general.
These things are included in the longer list of behaviors of sexually healthy people, compiled by professionals who work in sexuality and human development. The reality is that, as parents, we want our kids to have good sex lives when they grow up—and, sometimes, better sex lives than we have had. The dilemma is finding strategies to support healthy sexual development when there is so little helpful, public discussion about the positive aspects of sexual life.

Are Magazines Living or Dying?
Change is often a cause of most controversy within a society and one of the hardest things to accept, but failing to do you will find you will be left behind. It was only a few decades ago, a magazine feature was almost entirely made up of words and any images appear just as an afterthought.

Maybe it’s just part of The Change. Join Young Media Critics host Juanita Richburg Seon and her young associate Erika Shoemaker as they take a look back through the history of the magazine on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at 5 p.m. EST. and talk about changes in the medium- magazine.
