Must List

Check out the new issue of Girls' Life starring Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson and China Anne McClain on three special collector covers!

Our sweet and summery June/July issue starts hitting mailboxes and newsstands on May 16 (psst: want all three covers? CLICK HERE after May 17)! Here's a peek at what you'll find inside...

EXCLUSIVE! Why have one covergirl when you can have three?! That was basically our thought this spring when we were planning our June/July issue. So we teamed up with three of your faves—China Anne McClain, Sofia Carson and Dove Cameron—to create an epic trio of Descendants 2 collector covers. Our three triple-threat cover stars are taking over Disney Channel *again* this summer with the much-anticipated follow-up to Descendants, which hits screens Friday, July 21 at 8 p.m. These besties are, well, the best. Inside, they're dishing on their fierce friendship (#feels!) and spilling all the D2 secrets you need to know before you tune in. Oh, and did we mention they're showing you how to rock summer's sleekest styles? Yeah, there's pretty much no stopping them.

Win a trip to the Descendants set! We're *also* giving you the chance to win the ultimate fangirl experience with a trip for two to Hollywood for a special Descendants set visit! You'll even score a sweet stash of spellbinding swag including signed books and more. Want to win? Just CLICK HERE to enter.
