Will Stephanie Get the Story? is the first title in the GIRLS KNOW HOW® series, which encourages young readers to consider a variety of careers and how they can achieve their goals. With a focus on journalism, this book tells the story of Stephanie, a new girl at school, and her quest to land a spot on the Newspaper Club. A mishap with her application and a failed first attempt to write a story dampen her enthusiasm. After meeting the head of a major national newspaper (a character based on a real counterpart), she is inspired to give writing another chance, not only making the staff, but seeing her article published in the local paper. Readers learn along with Stephanie that with hard work and passion, anyone’s dream can come true. A bio and exclusive interview with the President and CEO of USA WEEKEND are included to guide readers wishing to learn more about journalism.
