People: Avril LavigneThanks to her catchy, guitar-driven single “Complicated,” Lavigne, 17, is poised to be the next teen-pop princess. But unlike her more mature counterparts Michelle Branch and Vanessa Carlton, she’s not in any big hurry to ditch adolescence. Lavigne laces this fun debut with charming punk attitude on youthful cuts like “Sk8er Boi,” about not judging a boy by his clothes.
While Lavigne may be young, she’s not that innocent. One moment she’s coyly sexy, the next she’s irreparably wounded. With a malleable alto that slips effortlessly from hushed whisper to angst-ridden roar, she shows an impressive range. Though she has room to grow as a lyricist (“I’m not the milk and Cheerios in your spoon,” she raps on one tune), Lavigne displays an emotional grace beyond her years on the string-drenched ballad “I’m With You.”

Bottom Line: Don’t Let This One Go.
