"This is what I needed in high school," Alyson says of The Good Girlfriend Guide, whose sales benefit Women's Empowerment. "My girlfriends and I were lost because we didn’t have older sisters or anything. I'm still friends with my friend that I met in junior high school. I've known her since we were 12, and now we're 37. We should celebrate our anniversary!"
High school wasn't easy for Alyson, she adds. "I went through a phase where I thought it was awesome to wear Dr. Seuss boxer shorts over leggings with a concert shirt. I'm sure there was a whole year of high school when that's what I wore every day with Converse."
