Pages from the personal journals of Rowan Blanchard, this book is full of poems, notes, drawings, photos, even pressed flowers. Written with raw, uncensored emotion, this book presents a unique account of the experience of emerging from childhood but feeling out of place in the adult world. Who better to write for young adults than a young adult?
Hollywood rising star and passionate humanitarian Rowan Blanchard shares her beloved personal scrapbook with the world.
Featuring art and writing from her favorite photographers, poets, and friends alongside her own journal entries and snapshots, STILL HERE is an unedited look at Rowan Blanchard's inner life--and a poignant representation of teen life in general. Alongside Rowan's own raw diary entries, poems, and personal photos are taped in letters, photos, and poems from her friends who inspire her, like the poet rupi kaur, photographer Gia Coppola, and writer Jenny Zhang, among others. The result is an intimate portrayal of modern girlhood and a thoughtful reflection on what it means to be a teenager in today's world.
