Colton Harris-Moore has been a one-boy crime wave since he was 7 years old. He has broken into houses, stolen cars and burglarized markets, hardware stores and cafes for years on this rural, woodsy island north of Seattle. Since early in 2008, when he escaped from a juvenile holding facility, Harris-Moore, now 18, has been leading police on a fruitless chase through Washington, Canada and Idaho -- stealing two boats and crash-landing three planes (he taught himself to fly on his computer, authorities suspect)

Worried about making a great impression on the first day of school? Even Miss Teen USA, Logan West, admits to feeling nervous on first days. "I was like petrified," the 18-year-old says. "I think it's just because it's a new year, it's new people, it's everything. " Often it's tempting to want to start a new school year - or any new chapter - with a totally new look as well. Just last weekend Miley Cyrus chopped her long locks into an edgy pixie crop and tweeted it for all the world to see. "Miley's cut is a bold move, and I have to say it's flattering on her," says Yesenia Almonte, beauty director for Seventeen magazine.
