About Chicken Soup For The Soul Just For Teenagers:

101 Stories of Inspiration and Support for Teens
Teenage years are tough, but this book will help teens as they journey through the ups and downs of adolescence. Chicken Soup for the Soul: Just for Teenagers provides support and inspiration for teenagers as they grow up, reminding them they are not alone, as they read stories from teens just like themselves about the problems and issues they face every day. The stories in this book serve as a guide on topics from the daily pressures of life and school to love, friendships, parents, and much more. This collection will encourage, inspire, and amuse teens, showing that, as tough as things can get, they are not alone!
My Review:
In this great collection of inspiring stories, the teen in your life will find a variety of topics with the book being organized into these sections:


-Liking Yourself
-Friendship
-Life Lessons
- Love and Relationships
-Family Ties
-Tough Times
-Taking A Stand
-Giving and Getting Kindness
-Funny Moments
-Setting and Reaching Goals


Definitely a little something for teens in all stages of life, and as I read the stories in this book, there is even many reminders for adults. Even though the Chicken Soup books are not specifically Christian, they would be a great addition to a quiet/devotional time. Each story can be read individually, taking one's time to get through the book, or can be read right through (which I did for sake of review).


A great gift idea for any teen in your life, for any occasion. I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
