1. Be sure to find a monologue that is right for your age. For example, don't pick one about a mother, father, wife or husband if you're not old enough to be one.
2. Select a monologue you can relate to. Find one that has an experience you share or an emotional you can connect to. Look for a character you understand or that is similar to yourself. Here are some good monologues for TEEN FEMALES and TEEN MALES? (or check out the list below)
"YOU SLAYED THE ANGEL OF MY INNOCENCE"
by D. M. Larson
It's so beautiful here. I love the beach. The ocean sounds always soothe me. I must have watched the sun go down a million times. I love the way the sun dips on the horizon and sets the ocean on fire. There's something magical about that moment. I feel like I'm catching a glimpse of heaven.
I used to believe in heaven before I met people like you. I believed people were good and decent and just wanted to help each other. You wanted to help too much. And you wanted too much in return.
You slayed the angel of my innocence. Shut her out. Made her ashamed of me and I lost her protection.
You gave me a kingdom and made me a queen. They celebrated my name and we feasted on your victims. We danced with the devil and delighted in his tunes, fanatics for his fiddle.
But you grew tired of me and sought new victims for your fire. I fell from my throne into the darkness. I so desperately want to see the light again. I want to catch a glimpse of heaven. I want my innocence. Give me my innocence! Give me my soul!

*** "THIS GIRL COMES AS IS" by D. M. Larson
Maybe you got scared being serious about a guy for once and
you decided to find something bad to focus on so you could have an
excuse to dump him. What else was wrong with him?
You have to be kidding me. That's why you dumped him?
Because he's poor? But shouldn't you marry for love?
Love lasts longer than money. So no matter how great the guy is,
if he doesn't have money, then you're not interested?
You're impossible. I have standards.
I want to meet a man who loves me for who I am and supports my dreams.
He won't ask me to change, but accept all my imperfections.
I don't want to be some guy's project and have him turn me into his mother.
And I want to love the man for who he is and not have to work him over
and mold him into something he's not. If you don't love someone for
who they really are then they're not right for you. I know I have a lot
of odd quirks and strange ways of looking at things.
I don't want to have to hide all that from someone and pretend to be someone I'm not.
Take me as I am, boys. This girl comes "as is."
