Format: Paperback
Teens Talk Middle School, edited by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Madeline Clapps, and Valerie Howlett, was truly inspiring. This non-fiction book was written by 101 people who wanted to share stories about their middle school years. If you are looking for a story about bullies, true love, finding passions or embarrassing moments, there is always an exciting chapter filled with those kind of stories for you to read. Each writer explained how they resolved, and expressed their experiences with teachers, friends, and other classmates in their pieces. Some of these stories were never resolved or acted on and the students expressed how they moved on or just lived through it. Teens Talk Middle School taught me how to deal with some of my own problems, as well as helping me feel more confident with myself. In this book, I saw other people talk about how they worked through tough experiences in middle school which showed me I can do it too. One story I wish to highlight, is about a boy named Conrado, who wanted some bullies to stop making fun of his weight. Everyday Conrado would go home and tell his dad about his problem; but he would tell his son to laugh it off. After Conrado overcame his fear of confronting the bullies, he came up with his own comeback. In the end, Conrado felt very good about solving his problem. All of the editors did an excellent job putting together such amazing stories. Teens Talk Middle School is a great book for any young teen, and was so much fun to read.

I bought this for my middle schooler and she loves it and it has practical advice in it. I also read it and like all Chicken Soup books I highly rate it.

Middle school is such a difficult time for nearly every child. Somehow, with patience and perseverence, we survive it. I wish I had a copy of this book 16 years ago. It would have been nice to relate to someone else - even if only through written word.

Parents, arm your middle schoolers. Buy them "Teens Talk Middle School." Let them know that we have been there too and that their problems are important.

Format: Paperback
This is a very touching book, sometimes funny,sometimes sad and always moving. Unlike other books, the 101 stories have a different feel, more like a bunch of freinds laughing and talking with you then other teen "support group" books' far-off, detached view. The Chicken Soup series has done it again!

My daughter liked the stories-
However, some seemed beyond middle school audience.
Esp. regarding boyfriends- there were also quite a few sad stories-
I bought it to give my daughter a perspective from the voice of fellow middle school kids,
and to be encouraging- some were not.
