Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Parents and teachers join with teen voices in Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul Letters: Letters of Life, Love and Learning edited by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Kimberly Kirberger. The authors of Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul, after receiving so many thank-you letters in response to the book, decided to compile many of them here. The letters begin with gratitude, but often wind up as a tool for sharing experiences, whether those of a teacher in a juvenile detention center, a 15-year-old struggling with cystic fibrosis or a vice principal of a high school who discusses a theft and the power of forgiveness.

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up-The contributors range from young teens to college students to professional writers, which is only clear from scanning the "Contributors" list at the end of the book. About two-thirds of the book is what readers might expect from the title: letters that mainly say thank you and others that include personal narratives prompted by "Chicken Soup" stories. Without showing any disrespect to the teens who had the courage to share their experiences, a few of these letters go a long way. The best writing makes up about a third of the book-stories and poems that are interesting, inspirational, and well written, and appear to be submissions in their own right. Buy where "Chicken Soup" products are extremely popular.

Format: Paperback
Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul: Letters is a collective book of responses to the first three novels of Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul. Each story is just as heart warming as the stories in the original book, but this time the stories are ones that occurred due to the previous books in the series. Each story delivers a heart felt lesson of an "oh well, I guess that my life isn't that bad after all, " or a "maybe I should change my life too". Many of the writers were going through times when they thought suicide was the best option or that there was no option at all, each writer then expressed their own reaction to the book and how their life was changed and put back on the right track. Within the contents of the book, I found some truly amazing and uplifting stories; one was about a girl suffering from the loss of her only sister and how each section of the book brought her to overcome her devastating reality. Another was about a girl who got copies of the book for the grieving students at Columbine. Each story was compelling, up lifting, and really let me see what living is all about.
On a scale from 1-10 I would give this book a 9, because of it's mysterious ways to make me feel better about my self or just put me in a better mood. One of the most important reasons to pick up this book is because it lets me know that no matter what I do I am not alone and that where ever I go, I can make a difference if I am compelled to help.

Format: Paperback
I loved this book! It is my favorite book of all time. It has alot of wonderful stories, letters, poems, and quotes. When people say that it is supposed to heal the soul, it really does. Some of the stories I could relate to and I knew how the young author felt in this situation. One of my favorite stories was the one titled "My Sister's First Love". It was about a teenage girl who had recently went through a horrible tragedy. Her first real boyfriend was experiencing certain symptoms and he often didn't feel well. He went to the doctors and learned that he had a tumor in his brain. He went through many tests. He died a while later on Valentines Day. It was a story that made me think. Some of the stories in the book were sad. After I finished the book, I thought about alot of things in life. It is a great book and it really does heal the soul. So I give this book 5 stars and reccomend it to anybody who is having a hard time in their life or to anybody who is looking for a great book to read that will keep them interested and get them thinking.

I wasn't sure what this book was going to be like. I thought letters might be boring but I was very wrong. This book is so good. It is like getting even closer to the teens who write the stories. This book has letters from teens, many who have had life changing experiences. You almost feel like you are reading sometones diary the stories are so personal. I coul not put this one down. I read the entire thing in one sitting.
