Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

This book, the latest in the hugely popular Chicken Soup for the Soul series, contains stories, poems, and cartoons relating to the specific troubles that traumatize teenagers everywhere. There are plenty of stories about dating ("HE KISSED MY TEETH!"), friendships (don't gossip), and school. But Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul doesn't shy away from the big issues either, with essays on suicide, dying young, and drunk driving. This book stems from the knowledge that teens know their own concerns best—thus, much of the book is written by teens themselves, which gives the book a very accessible, informal tone. Also, the authors had each piece evaluated by as many teenagers as possible. The care shows. Teenage Soul is always respectful, and doesn't minimize any of the dramas of adolescence. It does, however, mete out plenty of perspective. This wise, tender, funny book is filled with wisdom useful to teens (and everybody else, too). --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I am 11 years old,a young adolesence boy,My mother (a.k.a Santa Claus) bought me Chicken Soup For The Teenage Soul for CHristmas. I immediately put my other presents away and started reading.It was sad,heart warming,and happy at certain times.I realized how special I really am. It was amazing how other people around and over my age felt.Also very nice to see how girls feel and want in a man. Also,how no matter how hard times get,suicide is never the answer. There was two stories in particular I loved Sparky (in the section "On Learning)you will never believe the ending. Another on of my favorites is about suicide and how everybody deserves a friend it is Always Return Your Phone Calls (in the section "Tough Stuff") It is sad,beatiful,and very inspirational. I suggest this book to every kid my age this book is so good I am going to read it over and over again. Thank-you.

When I first heard about Chicken Soup For The Teenage Soul, I was not in a hurry to purchase or even read it. Later though, my freind bought it and I read a story he told me too. WOW! That one page of what he went through totally changed my perspective on life. I went home and bought the book that night. When I began to read it I relized what I had read was just the beginning of a renewal on the way that I treat and look at my life. Day after day I read a few stories at a time. There were stories that caused my to laugh, cry, smile, frown, get scared, think, and love. If there were more stars beside just 5, I would give them to this book. I feel like this book has renewed so many things in my life that I believe i am a different person. I also have learned many lessons about family, life, freinds, and many many other things. I would recomend this book to anyone that needs a little hope, inspiration, renewal, or just a nice read. Thank yo for your time and if you read Chicken Soup for the Teenage soul I hope that you enjoy, wait, I know that you will enjoy every story in there. Thank You!

When i sat down to read chicken soup for the teenage soul i gfigured it would be something written for younger teenagers. Myself being a 19yr old college student i didnt think i would like it. Well let me tell you i was tottaly wrong. Within the first half hour of reading this book i determined it was perfect for me. I got to the point where i could not put this book down. The stories of the heart submitted by other readers touched my heart. Whether it was reading about young love or friendship wvery story related to my life in some way. Whether you are a teenager looking for a book, or a parent looking for a book for your teenager, i would highly recomend Chicken soup for the teenage soul!

Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, and Kimberly Kirberger.
Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul was an outstanding book. There are about 101 stories and, it was rated #1 from the New York Times. In the book there were several different topics. They were on relationships, friendships, families, love and kindness, learning, tough stuff, making a difference, and going for it! Having all these stories put into one book seems kind of weird, but if you think about it, they are all in there for a reason. All of the stories in this book deal with life, love, and learning. By reading this book you get the chance to hear about other teens' lives and what problems/ experiences they are going through. Each new story contains something new to learn. Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, and Kimberly Kirberger came together as a team and did a very nice job getting information on things that are going on with teens today. I think that all teens can relate to this book because they might have been through some of the problems/ experiences or maybe know people who have. It gives people a better understanding of kids' lives. After reading the stories in the book, you want to get up and go do something, if not for yourself, then for others. I enjoyed the book very much. I would recommend it to all teens out there!

Format: Paperback
I got this book because one day in 7th grade, a girl started to read a poem during a nosiy classroom, everybody, includes the teacher, stopped what they were doing and glues their ears to her words! The poem was so powerful and meanful that it left us all speechless! Right when, I got home I ordered the book. Ever since I got it, it has always been there for me. Whenever I had a problem, I could just open it and fell better. The stories really made you think about what if that was you or I can't believe that is true. I would read and get done with a story and make everyone in the room read it because of how it made me feel. This book is very powerful and I think every teenager should get it!

This book was a gift from my mother when I was younger going through my rough times in life. At first I thought that it was a stupid gift and and didn't read it. But one day sitting around board I thought I should take a look after that there was no way to get me to put it down. What really attracted me to it was the very first part was about love, and me being in a new relationship I profited a lot from it. Besides this book teaching us about love it also talks about life and our growing world. It shows us that life isn't always perfect. No matter what you've just been through either a death or a broken relationship, someone has already been there and they got through it and so will you in time. If there was any book I would recomend this would be one of them.
