Amazon.com Review

Sometimes the best way to get through hard times is finding out you're not alone. The books in the Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul series have provided just that reassurance to millions of teens in the few years since the first was published. Much like the earlier volumes, the third in the series features stories, poems, and cartoons, most of which were written by teens themselves. Twenty teen reviewers read every submission, narrowing the selection down to 5,000 favorites. Editors Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, and Kimberly Kirberger made the final cuts. The result? Packed with compassion, heartache, love, experience, and wisdom, Teen III (as the editors refer to it) is every bit as inspirational as the earlier editions.

Most of the stories are contributed by young, unpublished writers, and the quality of the writing is good, if a touch melodramatic at times. But then, adolescence is nothing if not melodramatic, and the audience undoubtedly will relate perfectly to the tales of betrayal, friendship, identity crisis, parental clashes, and painful crushes. The editors have organized this collection into nine categories: Relationships, Friendship, The Power of Love, Family, Lessons, Tough Stuff, Overcoming Obstacles, Self-Discovery, and Growing Up. A great source for laughs, advice, compassion, and the comfort of knowing that we're never as alone as we think. (Ages 13 and older) --Emilie Coulter

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-9-Fans of Chicken Soup are invited back for a third helping with this abridged version of the book (Health Communications, 2000). Storytelling is done by teen narrators David Kaufman, Ashley Peldon, and Kimberly Kirberger. The topics of the stories range from boys to bullies to bulimia. Most of them focus on teen concerns. The use of young narrators helps to give each story a sense of reality that should connect with many young adults. Using different voices for the title, a quote, and then the text of each story causes a little confusion at the beginning of each story. Purchase where the series is popular.

This book is great. I didn't know there were so many great true stories out there, but the authors of "Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul III" have found many more inspirational stories. This book was written to help teens deal with the issues that they face everyday, from first love to heartache, from best friends to enemies. This book will help guide you through the tough times and add happiness to the great times. The best part of this book is that the stories are written by teens for teens. There is something for everyone in it. The variety in this book is great. From the cartoons to the poems, you will never get bored of reading it. I could barely put it down. I learned a lot of great lessons while reading it. Another great point of this book is that you can go back and read different sections over again, depending on your mood. For example if you are depressed and want to read a story to brighten your day you can read one out of the "The Power of Love" chapter. I strongly recommend this book to anyone looking for a great read.

I am an avid follower of the Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul series and after reading Teen 3 I have to admit I am increadibly impressed by the calibur in which this book was written. Teenagers obviously have alot to say, and in this book they say it with such heart, such intelligence and such gentle wisdom. I read the entire book in one sitting, I couldn't put it down and in that I realized something, that with all the books out there for teenagers, as a teen, I would much rather read stories written by my peers. The first two books of the series were increadible, but there is something to be said for that fact that this was the first to make me cry, laugh, and re-read the next day.

A Kid's Review on September 30, 2000
Format: Paperback
I thought this was a really good book. I'm thirteen now , but I read a Chicken Soup For the soul book for the first time when I was twelve. I have Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul 2 and 3. And my younger brother recently got Chicken Soup for the Kid's Soul. Some of the stories I read didn't apply to me, but I still enjoyed reading them, and seeing how the different people overcame different situations. I was especially touched by one story entitled " Tell Me Why You cry" in Chicken Soup for the teenage Soul two. But I won't say what is was about. I'll let you find out for yourself. Because every teenage kid, or twelve and eleven year-olds should read these books. Because whether they make an impact on your life or not, they will show you that you can overcome anything if you try.

Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul 3 indeed does hold more stories of life, love and learning. I got this book for my birthday four months ago, and I have read a story almost every night. The stories in these books are written by teens, for teens. Stories about everything from bilingual relationships to suicide attempts. I have also read Teen 1 &2 as well as Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul letters. Letters from readers tell about how hearing that they were not alone saved some people from suicide, salvaged relationships and healed those whose hearts were broken. Obviously, the stories in these books are quite powerful, and though sad, I would put this on a must-have list for teens of all shapes and sizes.

Another great entry in the "Chicken Soup" series. Your teen will find plenty of meat in this soup to help guide him or her through these challenging years. Some of the stories can be a real inspiration. There isn't a lot of preaching that teens will resist, but interesting, informative stories by their peers as well as their "elders." A wide range of topics are covered, all of interest and value for teens. Topics range from friends, parent problems, and love, to daily pressures, dealing with relatives, and everyday activities. They're sure to learn from the experiences of others. The girls will learn from what the guys are really thinking. The book is very up-to-date, providing teens with what they need to know in their current culture. Both guys and girls are sure to benefit, while they enjoy reading. There is definitely a lot of "stuff" in these 400 pages ! A must read, especially as vacation time approaches.

I love the teenage Chicken Soup books. Each one was impossible to put down. I love the new one even more. It seems like the authors are really getting closer to the things teenagers care about. Don't get me wrong, the other books are fantastic, it is just that this one felt more "teenage" to me than any of the others. I am not going to be a teen for much longer and these books make me realize that the teen years are very specail. I am going to be sure to enjoy what is left of my teenage years. There were too many stories that were my favorites to list them all, but there is a secti0on on columbine that made me cry and the relationship chapter is incredible, especially the Dear Boy letter and the story Kissing The bully. There were so many goosd ones, you just have to read it and see for yourself. I am so thankful for these books.
