Form a punk band? Play a winning lottery ticket? Buy Amazon stock? Sounds great, but Darby has other ideas. Darby Derrex is not experiencing an early midlife crisis. (Or is she?) She’s failed on Wall Street and in her relationships.

Concertgoers are crowd surfing. Bands like Smashing Pumpkins rescue us from Celine Dion and hair metal. And it’s the year Darby left behind her music critic job—and her true love.Once Darby goes back, she has a blast—and that’s part of the problem. She’s got 90 days to return or stay back forever. Both are tempting, but Darby has to face the music.ANDY FRYE has written for Rolling Stone, ESPN and other publications. Currently, he writes about sports business for Forbes.

How often have you heard a teenager or an adult say, "I'm fine." And yet knew they weren't. We all fear that if we burden anyone else with our problems, they'll either see us in a different light, tell us that we're overreacting, or even worse, make fun of us. We all have something we're afraid to share, and that's why the teens in Boys and Girls Scream by author Kern Carter started a teen group at their school to help each other heal and stop the generation silence that's been past down through time. We dive deep into this unspoken pain in our world and give people a chance to finally get rid of all that unwanted baggage.
