A full-length erasure of the 1963 Seventeen Book of Etiquette and Entertaining, redacting and reinterpreting the rules of being a teenage girl in the late-1990s. Teen Queen Training follows the narrator as she navigates her shifting understanding of the world she occupies, which requires the presentation of specific emblems of success while simultaneously demanding the obfuscation of any doubt.

Selected excerpts:

  • Chapter 7: Good Sorts, Split Lip Magazine
  • Chapter 12: Lanes, The Collagist/The Rupture
  • Chapter 15: Tone, The Normal School
