We believe Every Story Counts. Kids’ interest in reading skyrockets when they can see themselves in a story. There’s an opportunity for more fiction to reflect the lives of real girls — smart, interesting, multidimensional girls of all different backgrounds.

Offer any young person a diverse array of rich characters, and you open up possibilities in that reader’s world. Learn more about In This Together Media here.
