Can anyone tell which books Malia and Sasha Obama bought recently? Tell us your best guesses in the comments section. (Look at a larger version of this picture.) Malia will turn 15 in 2013 and Sasha will turn 12. Now that the president has been re-elected, they will be 18 and 15 when they move out of the White House. They are the new First Teens of the United States. What do you think life would be like as a teenager in the White House? They live with constant secret service protection and with their parents’ every move scrutinized. They are not allowed on Facebook (and, by the way, the Twitter accounts are not really them.) They also live knowing that while they are largely shielded from the public eye now, as they enter adulthood their lives will become more and more public. With the potential to become role models and leaders themselves, what kind of adult lives are they starting to plan? Media attention means power, and as Spider-Man learned the hard way, with power comes responsibility.
