Guide Review - Tween Girls Magazines - Review of Girls' Life Magazine
Girls' Life magazine focuses its content on girls in the middle school grades. While the magazine may be a bit mature for younger tweens, it does a very good job of delivering pertinent information to older tweens wanting to know more about fashion, relationships, problem solving, boys, dating, school, and much more.
While the magazine concentrates a little too much on beauty and celebrity, it is also feature-heavy, meaning it delivers a lot of information in meaningful articles. Topics include heavy hitting topics such as bullying, eating healthy, believing in yourself, etc. The departments are loaded with advice on makeup and beauty, celebrity spotlights, and questions and answers.
Girls' Life is published six times a year.
