Well, for one thing, it's the coolest high school newspaper in all the land. Watch our video and find out more.
Just about everyone knows someone who has been bullied, in ways big and small. Understandably, though, many victims are reluctant to speak about their experiences. We found some who aren't.

Here are four prom face-offs at The St. Pete Boxing Club, which welcomed us like champs: short vs. long, feathers vs. beads, and bow tie vs. tie.
Finding the perfect prom outfit can be a struggle, with so many contenders. How do you choose a style, or color? Or price: rent or buy? Or length: short, long, or both in one? To help you, tb-two* staged a glamorous fight club, and feel free to talk about this one. If it’s your first night here, you have to dance. (If some other girl shows up wearing the same dress, well, then it may go from battle to war, but you’re on your own there.)
★ Jump Apparel, Dillard’s $169 (pictured at top)
Wharton High senior Sarina Moon is ready for any contender in this red satin high-low dress, its ruched bodice gathered into a jeweled side panel and flirty pickup skirt gracefully trailing into a train lined in black and white zebra print.
Sarina’s commentary: “I look like the Asian Shakira. This dress is very different, and I like that it has (the zebra lining).”
★ Terani COUTURE, Lending Luxury (pictured at bottom left)
The crowd goes silent when Emily Bordignon, a senior at Osceola Fundamental High, enters the ring in this mesh-sleeved, floor-length gown with crystal accents. Beginning with the crystal-beaded collar, which flows into a peek-a-boo bodice, the embellishments of this gown are stunning, including beaded cuffs and more beading at the plunging back waist, topping off the long train. $75 five-day rental, $572 retail
Emily’s commentary: “I like a lot of things about this dress; I LOVE the back. I would never be able to wear this to my actual prom, though. I couldn’t have the exposed back and sheer (front panels). Kids have gotten kicked out (for such) in previous years.”
★ The details: Pictured from left at bottom
