We got this for a family trip to keep my 11 year old entertained and I feel betrayed by this usually uplifting series. The stories were very depressing. I find it hard to believe that the other people that reviewed this book actually read the whole thing. The stories were great in the beginning, but then towards the middle they got to be extremely disturbing. My daughter was very distraught after reading about suicides and extreme bullying. I see what Chicken Soup is trying to do- raise awareness for social problems, but to put this heavy burden on the young people when they were trying to read something uplifting to get a break is abusive. They should stick to their uplifting stories and then they can donate the profits to any project or worthy charity.
