|Finally we get to the next issue, in February.|
|Cover Model, Veronica Pepe.|
|So that's how they covers.|

|Black girls in music.|
- Girl Power! Ways of changing the word such as by recycling and donating to Somalia
- POGs, which were the new fucking hotness in the 90s.
- AG wanting you to design a sweatshirt for a contest
- Reading books and forming a book club
|Shopping with Mom.|

I included the image of the young girl working as a sharecropper, because my grandmother on my mom's side and grandfather both spent the years of their childhood as sharecroppers, which was only a half step away from slavery.

|Get your school on.|
|Halloween parties rock.|
|Paper dolls of you.|
After this is the six winners of the American Girl Poetry contest. I think they still do contests annually. After that is some Giggle Gang stuff, blah blah blah puzzles and jokes--
AND THEN THE GOOD STUFF.
Help!'s questions discuss dealing with asthma, fighting with your mom, why it's a dick move to leave disabled girls out of friendships, and how it's also a dick move to not be nice to other girls because they don't have name-brand clothing.
|Paper Doll #6: Chrissy|
Chrissy gets a blue leotard that matches the color she's assigned; another trait that will carry forward for the rest of the series.
|Next time: Giftmas comes back!|
