When will my voice change?

ANSWER

The hormones in puberty will cause your vocal cords to get thicker and longer. One day, your high-pitched voice will suddenly "crack." This is normal and will eventually stop. When it does, your voice will be deeper, and it will stay that way. But your voice won't change until you're almost done with puberty.
