    Vanity Fair Editor Jane Sarkin

    By Darina S., Warren, NJ

    My school newspaper just did an alumni issue for which we interviewed successful or famous alumni. I interviewed Jane Sarkin, the features editor of Vanity Fair magazine and found her quite fascinating.

    What activities did you do at our school?

    We had the first women‘s soccer team. I played tennis and field hockey, but I liked soccer best. I wrote a bit for The Record. I sang in choir. I remember we did “Bye, Bye Birdie, ” which was a lot of fun.

    How did you get into journalism?

    This school really got me interested in English. I loved the literature and doing papers; it was my best subject. I also loved French. The entertainment world always interested me, that‘show it all happened. I did well in college because I
    knew how to study, take notes and write a paper. I‘m really thankful for that. I believe that all my success came from this backbone of good education, which started in high school.

    How did you come to work for Vanity Fair?

    I worked for Andy Warhol (at his magazine Interview) for four years. This Oscar night was my 20th anniversary at Vanity Fair.

    Actor/Singer Miranda Cosgrove

    By pavlina, port orange, FL


    Feeling a little nervous, I walked backstage with the tour manager to meet up with the teen who’s probably the highest paid actress on TV. (Yes, it’s common knowledge in the entertainment world that she makes three times as much as Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez combined). But my nerves disappeared the second I met Miranda Cosgrove, star of “iCarly.” Even though this 17-year-old is a world megastar, she acts like you and me. Really!

    Very original sequel for the Arthurian legend. There weren’t many discrepancies from the legend, for once, and that is a plus. Overall written wonderfully, I found it totally mind-blowing. I would recommend it to anyone who loves the Arthurian legend.”

    Every Friday, we bring you an undiscovered gem to read on Wattpad. This week, our secret Wattpad Talent Hunters recommend The Flower of King and Knights, a fantasy adventure:

    The Flower of King and Knights by senseiseth

    The Age of Arthur has ended, for fifteen years the lands of Britannia have been subjected to wars, raids, and is now left in a state of chaos unseen in decades. All is lost, Avalon is all but forgotten, the Vikings and Saxons have returned a hundred fold, and no lord can unite the peoples of Britannia to end constant slaughter. Until now…

    Come from a land and time unseen in years, comes to heir to the House of Pendragon. Raised by Merlin and, trained in the art of war by surviving Knights of the Round Table, he has returned to his homeland to bring order and justice to his people. But with deceitful lords, roaming invaders, and old foes come from beyond the grave, will the legacy of Arthur be triumphant? With both Caliburn, the sword of Uther, and Excalibur, the sword of Arthur at his disposal, will this one chance of survival prevail. Only time will tell…

    From the Isle of Avalon, to the Kingdom of the Faes, to the highlands of Scotland, and the grasslands of Ireland, and the parapets of Camelot, The Swords of Destiny is a continuation of a narrative that has entranced and delighted generations. Filled with epic battles, passionate romance, and legendary characters, Hector will learn what it means to be a king, and a hero.

  • 01/27/12--14:03: Book Review: The Outsiders
  • Wattpad brings you a guest post originally published in Teen Ink magazine:

    The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

    By Michael J., Twinsburg


    Though I usually prefer science fiction and fantasy, reading The Outsiders was a phenomenal experience. The story line is good, but what sparked my interest is how S. E. Hinton, who was 16 at the time she created this, writes. Everything flows smoothly, and with so much detail. You get to know the characters so well it’s hard to believe the story just covers one week of their lives. This book is extremely hard to put down.

    The Outsiders is about a gang of “greasers,” or underprivileged teenagers, living on the east side of Tulsa, Oklahoma. They are constantly under attack from the rich west-side Socs, and have parties and rumbles all the time. The narrator, the orphan Ponyboy Curtis, pretty much knows what to expect from his day - school, track, homework, football at the lot - until one of his friends takes the greaser-Soc battle too far.

Her dreams are invaded by vivid nightmares, a stalking shadow begins to watch over her, and, the worst of them all, there’s a rival immortal who’s found his way to Royal Palm and is up to something sinister. Can Jenny manage to defeat her rival vampire, protect her new companions, and still manage to hide the truth from the man she loves?
