      Wow, a very powerful and well written article. Anna really captures the vulnerability of the awkward teenage years, when one feels so much but can’t quite articulate those feelings. Lyrics became her voice, her vehicle to navigate her confusion and isolation. I could feel each word, see each scene unfolding. I loved this. I could see Anna as a great mentor for young girls.

      Frankly, I found this article beautiful, but the huge polarization along gender lines to be found in the comments section is ... something to behold.
