    Responses of "An ounce of Cure" Alice Munro's fiction "An ounce of Cure" described a teenage girl's first experience of getting drunk and the prices she paid for it in a humorous and self-ironic tone.

  • Film For Young Teenage Girls
    291 words
    "Never Been Kissed " Never Been Kissed"Never Been Kissed" is an adroit film for teenagers to go see, but more specifically I would say that this is a film for young teenage girls. This film opened in the year 2000 and will most likely be alive in the hearts of those who saw it for a very long period of time. It will probably go on to be a classic to the girls who saw it even if they grow up to be older women. "Never Been Kissed" could be described as a funny and big hearted motion picture that h...
  • Author's Main Character In The Story
    597 words
    As the old saying goes, "an ounce of cure is worth a pound of prevention". I believe that this is what the author thought of when choosing the title for this story. There is a lot of wisdom found in these words that is usually only realized after the fact. This reminds me of another old saying that I think also applies to this story - "Hindsight is twenty-twenty". How many times have we thought, "if only I knew then what I know now"? Would we have made the same choices? This question is difficul...

Many of the problems of the past still exist, and they may push the victims of the oppression beyond the point of no return. Teenage girls, such as myself, can be the victims of several type...

  • Teenage Girls Magazines
    1,624 words
    To teenage girls magazines are very important along with television and the internet as it is one of the only ways that teenagers can keep up with trends, what make up to wear, who's hot and who's not. For example for the average teenager it could completely crush your "street cred" if when asked for example what you think of Justin Timberlake, and you reply "Justin Who".
