Past Issues:

Comparisons to Other Magazines:
Over the past five decades, Seventeen has helped shape teenage life in America. Seventeen has represented an important rite of passage, helping to define, socialize and empower young women. Seventeen has been a significant force for changea??creating notions of beauty and style, proclaiming what’s hot in music and movies, identifying social issues, celebrating the idols and icons of popular culture. One of the most buzz-worthy programs is the “Seventeen Body Peace Project,” a year-long initiative to help girls stop obsessing about what their body looks like, start appreciating it for what it can do, and ultimately make peace with their bodies. Seventeen also partnered with MySpace, the largest social networking site, to launch the ground-breaking Web reality program “Freshman 15,” which gives millions of teens an inside scoop on the often overwhelming emotional and lifestyle changes taking place at college.

Seventeen readers have a passion for a variety of products. Advertisers include fashion, retail, footwear, accessories, beauty and health products. These range from luxury goods to everyday essentials targeted to fashion conscious, trendy young women.

The perky authority on all things girl since 1944, Seventeen magazine still provides advice and encouragement to masses of young misses. Although the primary focus is fashion and famous folk, this teen zine is not mere eye candy. Mixed among the cutting-edge styles (and multitudinous ads) you'll find short but plentiful articles. Topics range in import: fluff stuff like "What Will You Wear Back to School?" and "The Ultimate Ponytail Guide" is balanced by heavier fodder, such as "No One Believes I Was Raped" and pieces on having a gay sibling and the dangers of binge drinking. Skewed largely toward a Caucasian teen audience, the magazine's coverage of beauty and relationship conundrums does offer nods to young women of color. The tone is resolutely positive, and amid all the talk of must-have hairdos and hottie alerts, the message is girl power in its most nonthreatening guise. --Brangien Davis

Seventeen is a general service magazine for young women emphasizing fashion, beauty and lifestyle information, including health, food, careers, relationships, sports and entertainment.

Customer Reviews:

  • My Favorite
    I have subscriptions to a few magazines, and I have to say, SEVENTEEN, is the one I'm always looking forward to. This magazine has a little bit of everything- fashion and make-up tips, how to be healthy (not just stick thin!), tips for school, fun (not very useful, but fun) stuff on guys and love, teen stories, and important information to be aware of. It's fun, but also informing.

    The models are normal girls, and this mag shows things that not only a size 0 or 2 girl can wear, but also clothing that can be worn by a girl who's size 4, 8, or 16. Many styles from girly to goth are shown, not just one. The clothing and accessories are also affordable, and can be found at stores in your nearby mall.

    SEVENTEEN isn't all fashion. It's really all about embracing who you are and making the most of life. It's about feeling good about yourself and loving yourself for who you are, and not what you aren't. I've used some of the tips on health, skin care, feeling good, and make-up, and you know what? They do work, and are actually helpful (***gasp***).

    The celebrity interviews are very good, and such that you can relate to them. The stories about things in teens' lives are also very good- some are sad, but they all make you aware of what really goes on out there.

    It's a wonderful magazine. It doesn't have an overload of ads like Teen Vogue or Elle Girl, while still including fashion (though I will say not as much as these two mags, because these two are almost entirely all how to look good). SEVENTEEN however, has a bit more fashion than Teen People, Teen People having more stories and such (though it is right up there with SEVENTEEN). SEVENTEEN is a happy medium. It's an awesome magazine!...more info
  • Great all around magazine
    Seventeen is my favorite magazine. It has so much stuff in it relevant to my life. Fashion is affordable and makes sense, good real life stories in November, especially the obssesion story, good skin/makeup advise and a good new section this month- college. It was actually HELPFUL for teens just starting high school too. It usually takes me a while to read it not like other magazines that i get through in 15 minutes. Teen Vogue is so expensive i just read regular look at fashion ideas. I also like the mail page you can read other girls opinions about past stories. A great magazine. ALSO can't wait for the show on mtv!...more info
  • They don't have to be seventeen...
    I purchased this magazine for my thirteen year old grandchild. I did not want the usual "tween" magazine who's main focus was on fashion, or celebrities behaving badly. I read Seventeen when I was a teen,many years ago, and it has only gotten better through the years. Her first issue got my grandchild talking over some important articles she had read with her mom, without the embarrassment and difficulty that usually occurs when teens and parents talk. The articles really relate to today's teens,and provide positive role models, something that is really needed for young girls in this day and age. ...more info
  • Great, but could be better
    This magazine is great for pre-teens~teens because it has affordable fashion, cute make-up, issues that teens can really relate to, and best of all, interesting articles.
    There are so many magazines out there for children ~ pre-teens but most of them are childish/too old. There are disturbing articles and some which I personally think is just silly. But in Seventeen (and to that girl who kept saying Atoosa has no fashion sense, YOU have no fashion sense) there is really things that you can understand, most of which you need to know but are afraid to ask. The clothes are cute and affordable, and for fashionable ladies, there is always a Seventeen Splurge! which shows some really cool designer labels which you can buy to treat yourself. Teen Vogue, and Elle Girl, they have some nice clothes, but you double take on the prices. Most girls (except for one reader who seems to be able to buy anything she wants) cannot afford such clothes. Plus, you see most girls, and they are NOT wearing clothes straight from the runway. They are wearing clothes that they find cute from NORMAL stores at the mall.
    Seventeen is a magazine for girls who are fashionable, fun and fabulous (okay, corny) but its true. It's much better for teens than all the other magazines out there. ...more info
  • There's A Reason Why Seventeen Is #1
    This is a wonderful magazine for your typical teen. It gives reasonable priced things to buy, tells you what to wear and how to wear it, gives you great makeup and guy advice, tries to encourage you to be politically and socially aware, and helps you learn to be healthy and fit. It's an all-around wonderful magazine. I used to love YM, but I'm beginning to outgrow it... Seventeen should last me through college at least......more info
  • Call publisher directly
    I purchased this magazine through Amazon. The magazine got sent to the incorrect address because of how many different hands it goes through before the publisher gets the address. Publisher doesn't have any of my information on file because I purchased through Amazon. Amazon customer service is a call center in India with employees who have a sheet in front of them with the solution to all problems, the solution to magazine subscription problems is to give you the publishers phone number. You cannot get refunded, you cannot get the problem corrected. You can however call the publisher directly and ask for the same price Amazon sells the magazine discounted for and receive your magazine a lot faster....more info
  • Good magazine
    I've been subscribing to Seventeen for about a year, and I would say that it is a good magazine, but not fantastic. I would recommend Seventeen to older teens ages 15-20, because the magazine focuses more on sex and college than other teen magazines, so parents might not approve of their kids reading these topics at an early age. It does have all the other aspects of a teen magazine though, such as embarrasing moments sent in by teens, letters to the editor, fashion and beauty features, advice about boys and friends, and real-life issues. Seventeen features a wide variety of celebrities on their covers, including many of the hottest stars. There are advertisments in this magazine, but thankfully not so many that you'll be lost just trying to find the table of contents. I would generally say that Seventeen is heavy on college, sex, fasion, beauty, and boys and medium on real-life and celebrities. A good thing about this magazine is that the editors aren't opiniated, so the magazine can cater just about to any teens with any interests. If you are about 18, you probably would find Seventeen more informative and useful than if you were 14. But Seventeen is a good magazine- read a few issues first, than describe if you want to subscribe....more info
  • Simply Seventeen, FYI anouther stupid girl magizine
    When I first picked up seventeen, I was a little ify. Seventeen is ment for girls from 15-22. Anyone under will feel uncomterable reading it. It's alittle over the top with you're image. The magizine reapeats itself alot, for instance I have a january issue, and the december issue, they both have a huge sections on make-overs, which I personally think is stupid. I'd rather read a magizine with $600 clothes. The health section is always about how to get thin and attract boys. FYI boys are not the center of the world.

    Nor is hearing about celebrities. I don't get magizines. Can't there be one magizine with some stuff about real people, not models, who's faces have been airbrushed. I mean come on. From July to now the magizine is seriously heading down to Tiger Bop and Cosmo girl. Seventeen does have clothes around normal pricing, I haven't seen anything over $200 including prom dresses.

    For instance:

    Teen Vogue: $390
    17: $35

    Teen Vogue: $809
    17: $100

    Huge difference. Most of the clothes, are trying to be sexy and other junk. Almost everything is about boys and how to attraxt them. Some articles are pointless, and there just there to waste paper. I have absolutely no interested reading about a girl who was sexually harassed by her teacher, and etc.

    Not one issue of 17, I have seen, has done an articles on vegiterians, katrina, or any important, WORLDWIDE STUFF. They briedfly mentioned somthing in the november issue, that was it on Katrina. Their love & Sex section is nothing more, then how to get pregant the wrong way, or have sex for fun. This magizine doesn't seem to know even what love is!?

    Their heath section is simply how to get your best butt. Oh yeah, my butt is very important, it should be the best big whoop. What is up with the 17 show, it basicly just makes fun of girls in school. The girls have been forced to do awful stuff, the people even put cameras in the bathroom miror, yep taking a shower is easy with a camera two feet away.

    My overall opinion of the magizine is that it's trashy, celebrity stupid, and focuses to much on self images. I give it 2 **....more info
  • teens do what they do
    i think that seventeen magazine gives teenage girls a better understanding of what we have and might go through in our teenage years. i think it shows girls a way to deal with life in a better perspective way. i afiliate with this magazine because it is fun to read and is also a better way to asociate with other people and many people would like to talk to others without fighting, yelling,each other...more info
  • going!
    A few years ago, Seventeen used to be nothing but one huge ad for pretty boys and makeup. Under Atoosa's leadership, it has become mature and interesting. I appreciate the articles on politics, government, and world affairs. The magazine has is a great education for young girls...more info
  • This Magazine is GREAT, period.
    I am 13, and I have to say, I know I'm still a young child, but I am growing, and I am becoming curious about different things and am changing in so many ways. Seventeen is one of the magazines that actually makes a difference in my life. It is fun, but also informs me on many things that will eventually cover several aspects of my life. I don't recommend this magazine for anyone under 12 (Seventeen doesn't have that much innapropriate information for young teens. Parents, I do consider that you review Seventeen before you let your child read it. Seventeen does NOT focus too much on celebrities, even though they will have one or two sections in each issue relating to celebrities. They have the fashion section, which has tons of actually useful style tips and embrace ALL body types. The beauty section has great tips on how to apply your makeup, and they have different looks, so you don't only have one makeup look where they have a bunch of makeup and it is overpowering your face. There are lots of options. There are the feature articles, which are always fun to read (and informing). I definitley will continue subscribing to this magazine because I thoroughly enjoy it, and I hope that you will too. But, the only way to really know if you like it is to check it out at a your local grociery store or drugstore. It all comes out to YOUR opinion, not mine, but I hope you enjoyed this review....more info
  • This magazine is GREAT, period.
    I am 13, and I know I am young, but I am becoming curious of many different things and am changing in so many ways now. Seventeen is one of the magazines that really affects my life. This magazine is very resourceful and also fun. One thing to say, there isn't that much bad information that kids shouldn't be reading, but parents, I do advise that you review the magazine before letting your child read it. They have the fashion section, where not just one body type is included, but all body types and they have tons of different styles. They have great style tips too which I bet you'll like. They also have the beauty section which has tips on how to apply your makeup, and they have a wide variety of different makeup looks, so you're not stuck with the one look that has too much makeup on. They have the feature articles, which are both fun and informing. Time to time, they'll have an article on sex (just to say that to people who won't want to be reading that). They have many other things in the magazine like Tramarama which is embarassing stories, 17 Mission, which is an article that gets the attention of the reader to focus on everyday problems, like global warming or breast cancer. I hope you enjoyed this review as much as I love the magazine, but the only way you can really tell if you like the magazine is to just go check it out at your local grociery store or bookstore....more info
  • Not What I Expected
    I'm a 11 year old girl and this isn't good. I just like the pictures. Rather buy cosmogirl,teen people,popstar,j-14,and m. There's 2 much ads!!!!...more info
  • The best Magazine ever
    I've gotten hooked on this magazine the minute I started to read it. It has a lot of great tips for girls, and style advice. Although some people think that this is just another 12-13 year old's magazine, it's not. It's for all ages. Even older people (not trying to be rude;) )!!! Lost's of the stuff about style, they try to make it for girls who can't afford that 200 dollar pair of designer jeans, or that 150 dollar top. They have just as good as priced stuff (and looks way better) than those totally outragiously expensive stores that nobody can really afford. I love the magazine, it's for everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY....more info
  • Perfect mag for teen girls
    Seventeen is perfect for teen girls who love magazines! It's a classic, it's been around for years. This would be a great Christmas gift for any girl ages 13-19. It has a great mix of real-life stories, celebrity interviews and gossip, embarrassing moments, and fashion and beauty ideas. I love that lately Seventeen is focusing on in puting cheaper fashion ideas and also some designer things. And I LOVE that they have daily prizes, though your chances of winning are about 1:1,400. I've entered almost every day for about 5 months and still haven't won anything. And I agree with Candaceleutzy that there not always shipped properly, and often the back page will be ripped. They should put the magazines in plastic sheets before they mail them so they quit getting complaints. but I would still say it's my favorite "teen" magazine....more info
  • Magazine Subscriptions Take Far Far Too Long To Arrive
    I received a notice to write this review. It's been about a month since the subscription was ordered and the first magazine has still not arrived. Buy a book and it comes in days. Buy a magazine subscription and you wait forever.

    If Amazon can't get good service from those they deal with for magazine subscriptions, they should just drop the service altogether. It is a drag on the customer service of the entire site....more info
  • the best mag i've read...
    seventeen is one of the best mag's i've read in, (*thinks*) a few months. they have a good mix of fashion and read worthy articles in-between those two covers, and i would highly (HIGHLY!) reccomend this magazine! :0) :0)...more info

  • A pretty girly magazine with potential to diversify
    I was looking for a magazine to get a friend's teenage daughter who is at an age where she is interested in pop stars, beauty tips, fashion, celebrity news with a tasty bite, a bit of serious writing to make her think; after all she is at an age where she has to face the real world.

    I have to say Seventeen fitted all of the above criteria and it did it well, the photography was good, the writing style up-beat and smart, not too much talking down to the reader, however I did have one gripe that might offend people and I apologize if it does, but did anyone else look at this magazine and think, "What a white read!"

    My friend's daughter is mixed race and though I think she would like Seventeen from a girly point of view, I do think she will find it hard at times to identify with, because it does come across as "quite white."

    All the same it is a good magazine; it has well written articles, good photography and knows how to target its audience.

    All the same I will be giving it a miss on a subscription level for the moment as I don't think it is really suitable for someone who is not white, maybe in the future when it diversifies....more info
  • A Perfectly Well Rounded Magazine
    This magazine is a perfect magazine for anyone. It has true life and drama, make up, beauty, health, a monthly interview on the cover girl (or girls), and so much more. They have great monthly workouts that focus on certain parts of the body like buns, abs, and legs, and the good thing is...they actually work! They have so many things to offer that I am not surprised it's the most widely read women's magazine in the country!...more info
  • Why I think Seventeen isn't just another magazine!!!!!!
    Seventeen isn't just a magazine, it is something that you can grow old with. It not only gives advise it can change your life and even save lives and insprire the young people of today to become something more in life. And the fashion side of the magazine is great too, you can see the fashion is real and something South African's can really wear. I think Seventeen will go a long way....more info
  • GREAT magazine!!! They just need to cut down on the ads....
    Ok, just so you know, I'm 12 years old, but I know about all of the "stuff" that teen mags have in them. (And I'm really mature...just so ya know)
    A couple of days ago, I purchased this month's issue of Seventeen, because it had my fave celeb on the cover, Hilary Duff, and had a little interview with her inside.
    Well, after reading just one issue, I totally love this magazine! Not only did I like the interview with Hilary Duff, I also liked several other things in the magazine! I definitely plan on buying next month's issue!
    I also have a subscription to YM, but one thing that I really like in Seventeen that I don't in YM is that in Seventeen's fashion "bargain bin", the highest priced thing they had (in this month's issue, anyway) was only $20, when in YM, the highest priced would be like $50-65, which would either be a T-shirt or a purse or something like that.
    All of the makeup and clothes featured in Seventeen are cheap and affordable, and some of them you can actually purchase at stores like K-Mart, Claire's, or Wal-Mart.
    What I didn't like about this was the fact that it's 214 pages, but ads take up 95 pages. There was 119 pages of actual content, and quite good content, I might add.
    All in all, I think Seventeen is a GREAT magazine and I'm definitely looking forward to getting upcoming issues. (Who knows? I might even subscribe to it!)...more info
  • A Message To Parents
    I think that Seventeen is an excellent magazine for teenagers. The health section is great, fashion tips are fabulous, and anything that happens to be about sex is informative.

    Sex Articles: Come on people, if you want to keep your daughters away from this stuff they might as well live in a convent. Your daughters are going to know way more than you think and better they hear it from some place that gives them the truth and not from a friend who means well but just doesn't know anything. Sure, there is nothing that says "DON'T HAVE SEX" but it gives girls what they need to hear and then your parenting will decide when and what they do.

    Health: These days there isn't a girl around who doesn't want to be stick thin. It isn't their fault, it's the media. The good thing about Seventeen is that it shows girls instead of how to loose weight, how to be healthy. They have great food ideas, exersize plans and an over all healthy attitude towards weight loss and body image.

    Fashion: Seventeen has one of the best fashion sections out of all of the teen magazines. Yeah, it is fun to see the occasional Chanel or Marc Jacobs outfit in a magazine but not when it plasters the pages. Seventeen suggests affordable outfit ideas from drop-dead-gorgeous sling backs to don't-you-wish-you-knew-me jeans. Their "Splurge" outfits are just the right amount of occasional fantasy.

    Fun: They've got their share of cutesy quizzes and embarrassing stories because they realize that teens aren't adults and they still need a little childish fun. There are decoration tips, organization advice and some of the best stress reliever ideas I've ever seen.

    Note: They do have a regular article called "17 Real Life" which is usually okay with the occasional disturbing story. However, they do have a "17 Warning" on the bad ones and you could simply request that your daughter, if she's young, not read those. I highly suggest this magazine.

    To those who say that this magazine is mindless and turns your daughters into airheads I suggest you hear me out. Nothing turns your daughter into an "airhead." Perhaps an unhealthy dose of magazine reading and web surfing will make them slightly superfical but it is just a phase and will pass guaranteed. However, a monthly fashion magazine does not melt the brain nor fry brain cells. In fact, it probably does more good than it does damage.

  • I've Converted!
    Atoosa is a genius. A freakin genius. She's made a teenybopper magazine into one that can now be considered a bible to teens. I love this woman! First, she revamped CosmoGirl to become one of my favorite magazines with insightful articles and real life subjects. Now, she's done the same for Seventeen..but better! The articles are indepth, insightful, no "OMG..He's SOO cute," and worth reading. There's hair tips that real girls can use. Makeup tips that aren't insane and won't make you look like a hobo. Cute clothes that people actually wear and look good! That people can actually find in a store! That was probably my biggest selling point. You won't find a $60 shirt being labeled a "neccessity" here. Most of the stuff is at your local mall and plainly stated so. The real-life articles are eyeopening. I cannot say enough good things about this magazine. It will take you literally 3 hours to read through it all and you will still go back and be surprised by things you've forgotten....more info
  • Not the best, but not all that bad
    I have to admit I like looking at the nice pictures and cute bags and so on. But who really really goes out and buys them? The whole reason is just for looking. I mean, some people have lives. They can't spend their lives going around following the magazine-trend and shopping. I like the clothes and everything, but it's a little pricey. I love the little articles like "Trauma Rama" or such. I don't really like the shallow-ish articles saying "Look! She's 17! And she's cool!" Those are redunadant (blah blah blah). But overall, I like wasting my time reading a mag at home, but not shopping for overpriced outfits and make up....more info

  • Read it for a few years.
    I started reading this when I was about 12, and I stopped when I was about 15. So, Seventeen would not be an accurate title for this magazine. I'm 17 now and I read JANE and NYLON. I guess for the average teenager it's okay, but I just got rather bored with it. It's the same thing over and over again, really. I suppose I just read magazines that are slightly above my age group. I would recommend it to young teens, though, then graduate to JANE or something. Jane is a good stepping stone....more info
  • IT'S OKAY.
    Seventeen is an okay magazine. The real-life stories get on my nerves because they have nothing to do with issues many girls face. And also, I don't read stupid articles in Seventeen like "How to get a boyfriend in 10 days". The FASHION? Don't even get me started. The fashion is horrendously horrible. Atoosa has no fashion sense at ALL. They show all this mainstream, ugly ABERCROMBIE (yuck) crap. If you want real fashion that celebrities and models wear, get Teen Vogue. Seventeen is kind of addicting though with the make-up tips, losing weight things and uhhh...yeahhh.
    If you're going to give this review a bad rating because I dissed ABERCROMBIE, go ahead. I'll know that you're an Abercrombie worshipper who has no style or fashion sense.
    Overall, Seventeen is okay for the makeup tips and beauty tips and how to look good(NOT including fashion) and the articles are pretty fun to read. ...more info
  • Great Editor
    I often find it hard to buy a teen magazine because there are a lot of redundant articles and trashy topics. However, Seventeen has a great new editor now who is really representing today's girls. I appreciate the new direction she has taken the magazine- less trash, more health,less boy stories, more faith. This magazine still has shopping and fashion and everthing we oodle over, but it also has some quality. I would recommend 17 over the others....more info
  • Great Magazine
    This is an amazing magazine for anyone ages 13-18. It's has informative articles and some serious stuff, but it also is chock-full of fun stuff and "girly" things like "The Right Guy for you" and "Who's your makeup muse?",. This mag is perfect for any girl, whether you're a tomboy or a girly-girl. I am 13 and in eighth grade, and I really luv it!!! ...more info
  • A waste of time
    This is one of those magazines for teenyboppers obsessed with make-ups (aka "beauty"), clothes, and celebrities. It is full of ads, models, and useless quizzes. Only few, few, few articles are worth reading. I encourage you to steer away from this horrible mainstream magazine. A precaution for parents: This magazine is FOR teenage girls having sex.

    Girls who start reading this from the age of, say, 12, are guaranteed to be: a)shallow, b)ignorant, c)obsessed with things that only matter in their own little world, d)oblivious to real problems in the real world, e)wearing low-cut jeans showing their thongs and tattoos right above their butt, and f)saying oh my god and like, like, a lot....more info

    I got this magazine for my daughter, Shanice for Christmas. She was happy to receive it in the mail but her name was not on the address. I specifically ordered it on her name Shanice Kloss. It's not a big deal since she really liked the magazine but she will be happy if you could change the shipping address to her name. Thank you....more info
  • The Lost Issue
    Your magazine is one of the best types of magazines that a teenage girl can read. In the year 1947 my grandmother had written an arcticle for your magazine titled "Oh,That Boy." By Bella Weissbrot. I was wondering if you had that issue from 1947 in one of your existing files and could possibly give me a copy of that issue. Although I am not exactaly sure about what the issue was titled. (...)...more info
  • maybe ok for 17 and up, but not for young teens
    Much of the content is inappropriate for young and mid teens. Just look at the cover stories - this month has one on "hot abs" and "the perfect kiss". Not terrible, but not really appropriate for the younger teens who often read it. Too much emphasis on fashion, make-up, and materialism....more info
  • Not appropriate for those with at least SOME morals
    I got this magazine for a year and a half before I had to quit my subscription recently. I liked all the fashion tips and articles on how to dress for your body size and style, and that is why I subscribed to begin with. But I was not expecting the bombardment of amoral opinions forced on me. (not to mention an overload of advertising- which you will get in most fashion magazines anyway, so that's not a complaint). Sure there was a few lines here and there that were nonbiased (telling the facts of STDs and such), but 90% of the articles on sex, were opinion and not fact. Girls today are having sex with anyone and getting hurt emotionally and physically because of magazines like Seventeen who say that sex is good if you're ready (What 15 year old girl is ready to have sex and get an STD or a baby?? Please.), and that condoms are 100% effective. They are not, but that's what most teen girls believe because of stupid magazines like this. They need to take advice from their parents and doctors, not magazine articles. I was disgusted at the opinions presented as truth to basically promote teen girls doing whatever they want without consequences. ...more info
  • Mag that encourages promiscuity among teens
    I used to read seventeen as a teen and looking back on it and flipping through a recent issue, I realized that this magazine is crude and talks to teens about sex as if it it was Cosmo or Marie Claire.

    This is not to be used as a moral compass and I don't think it has anything worthwhile reading. you would have read the magazine and taken nothing positive away from it.

    It's horrible....more info
  • For Fashion
    There's a lot of coupons and news for free stuff like lipstick and clothes in this magazine.

    Cute fashion taste....more info
  • #1 teen magazine
    A couple days ago, I read this magazine for the first time. I immediately fell in love with it! I've read other teen magazines such as TeenPeople and YM, but they don't contain as good of quality material as Seventeen. I like that Seventeen has a section for colleges, giving you the SAT score and other useful facts that you may want to know.

    I also enjoy the health section with the various exercises for different parts of your body. I was looking for new ways to get stronger arms (I'm an archer) and this pullout helped me a lot.

    Another thing I like about the magazine is the real life section. In the last issue, I learned about the FARC rebels and how they kidnapped innocent kids in Colombia, and forced them to kill others. I think that it is necessary for teens to learn about the world and other stuff than boys and fashion.

    I'm not saying that these two items should be ruled out. I like the articles on how to understand guys and how to find a bathing suit that looks good on you. I think that these topics are other important topics in some people's lives.

    Overall, I think that Seventeen is an excellent magazine that displays various topics that are important to teenagers. I suggest that you read this now, because after I press 'enter', I'm going to go and fill out my subscription to Seventeen. I hope you do to....more info

  • Seventeen stays young after nearly 50 years!
    Seventeen is still the best teen mag on the market, and for more than its excellent advice on style and cosmetics. The magazine features designer wear, sure, but never forgets that its target audience is exactly that - teens. The articles are fascinating and relevant to issues that affect us all. Over the years Seventeen has covered teen pregnancy, date rape and cults. You don't have to be seventeen to enjoy it - moms who loved it can still enjoy it with their own daughters. Highly recommend...more info
  • Seventeen Magazine Subscription
    I purchased this magazine as a gift for 2 friends of mine and I can't believe how quickly the subscriptions came. I appreciate the quick service. And I am sure the girls will really like the magazine. ...more info
  • Finally, it's good!
    Seventeen was probably the most unappealing magazine to me when I was in middle school. I bought my first issue in July 2003 because they didn't have my beloved Cosmogirl at the airport. I don't know who the editor was back then, but thank goodness for Atoosa. She changed the magazine around.
    Seventeen has nice clothing ads. Most of the clothes are affordable things which happen to have a universal appeal. Although sometimes the outfits featured are quite boring, there won't be something you don't like.
    The makeup is alright too, nothing special except for the occasional bit.
    The serious stories are great, nothing too overpowering, and plus there are warnings for graphic stories to keep your mind at peace.

    For you occasional magazine readers, the best time to buy this magazine is for back-to-school.
    Age reccomendation: 13-19 (seriously.)...more info

  • What Happend?
    Seventeen used to be great. Stuff about make up and evrything like that. It used to be really thick a lotta content. Now all Seventeen talks about is college and more college. It's still an okay magazine. It mentions good clothes and make up and has good interviews, but it used to be better. There isn't a lot of real life stories. I used to like it better. It's too short with everything now. There's not a lot about make up and fashion and mostly about college. But it's an okay magazine....more info
