Girl reading Paper Towns

Marla Miniano, Editor In Chief I think Michael Cunningham's The Hours should be required reading in school. —Marla, Editor In Chief
Steph Yapnayon, Art Director I really love  Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. The story is so whimsical and real at the same time. —Steph, Art Director
Angel Constantino Aquino, Managing Editor The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. It's such a simple yet powerful story that will inspire you to reach for your dreams. —Angel, Managing Editor
Dyan Zarzuela, Entertainment and Features Editor I just finished reading Paper Towns—I know, so late to the party, right? But I think the timing was perfect. I particularly like this exchange: "Nothing ever happens like you imagine it will." "But then again, if you don't imagine, nothing ever happens at all." —Dyan, Entertainment and Features Editor
Ning Nuñez, Fashion and Beauty Assistant The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath —Ning, Fashion and Beauty Assistant
Bianca Mascenon, Fashion and Beauty Assistant Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson reminds us of what the power of a little adventure, a killer playlist, and meeting new people can bring. —Bianca, Fashion and Beauty Assistant
Macy Alcaraz, Web Managing Editor

I can read Alan Lightman's Einstein's Dreams over and over again. I suggest you read it even just once! Macy, Web Managing Editor

Erin Torrejon, Web Fashion and Beauty Assistant How To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. It's taught me a lot about life and growing up, and I think anyone who reads it will surely gain something from it. —Erin, Associate Web and Fashion Editor
Ayessa De La Pena, Web Editorial Assistant David Levithan's Love Is the Higher Law for all the right ~*feels*~. It's also a beautiful reminder of how great the power of love is even and especially during trying times. :) —Ayessa, Web Editorial Assistant
