Fab Read: How Sassy Changed My Life

Do you gals remember Sassy? Before Teen Vogue there was Sassy, a late-eighties teen mag about feminism, celebrities and girl culture. What set Sassy apart from other magazines at the time was its honest voice and too-cool attitude - although some say this blase attitude contributed to its demise in 1996.

Almost twenty years later, New York writers Kara Jesella and Marisa Meltzer have written a "love letter" to Sassy in their book How Sassy Changed My Life: A Love Letter to the Greatest Teen Magazine of All Time, $13.

It is a behind-the-scenes look at the magazine's office culture, its coverage of feminism, celebrities and girls' problems. It also highlights struggles with advertisers, publishers, religious conservatives and other detractors.

If you missed the Sassy boat or have (foggy) fond memories, this book allows us to see where our rebel sisters and cousins were getting their advice from in the 80s heyday!
