Alfred A. After talking to girls between the ages of 13 and 19 in 10 states, she believes we should be very worried indeed. For most of them, social media is a necessary evil.

She reached out to me after reading a story I did for this magazine in January on the actor Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, who believed that the people who had allegedly defrauded them were trying to murder them.

She and her friends are at a mall, chatting about the kinds of photos they post on Instagram, and the pressure they feel to be perfect. Unlike many adults, Sales is listening. In an era defined by "pics or it didn't happen," what we do on social media often bleeds into life IRL. After all, how many times have you talked about what so-and-so posted on Snapchat last night with your friends at lunch, even though your phone is tucked away in your backpack? Or posted something to Instagram, only to sit there and hit "refresh" for 10 minutes afterward to monitor how many likes and comments your photo got?
I asked Anna if her friends joked about boys demanding nudes because it happened so often. Had the pressure to get likes on Instagram hurt her self-esteem? Sales argues that social media spews two all-consuming messages to teenage girls nearly every moment of every day: Always look pretty, never be prudish or slutty. For American Girls she interviewed over teenage girls, their parents, and experts in the field. Sales lets her subjects speak at length.
