Four girls, four years, and the change of a lifetime. Meet Ariana, Isha, Rosie and Esme as they let go of childhood and fumble–or sprint–toward an uncertain future. Without flinching, GOING ON 13 chronicles four girls’ of color coming of age and the precarious moments between being a little girl and becoming a young woman. As they grapple with issues of school, family, friends, and identity, GOING ON 13 allows us to see what real girls face during this pivotal time of puberty.
