Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul:
101 Stories of Life, Love and
Learning by Mitch Claspy
My Daugher Loves This Book
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 (dont gossip),
and school. But Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul doesnt 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 doesnt 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 book was a wonderful and uplifting read. A lot of the p assages will be
in the back of my mind for a long time. The stories with love, hope and
forgiveness really hit home for me. The only thing that I would like to see
more in this book is poetry.
You would like this book if you love the feeling of being tha nkful of what
you have. It makes me think to be kinder to people and to be happy that
people are how they are and no one should try to change them. That some
people are there to help and some people are there to be helped by
people. I just think that this book will make so many people's lives so much
brighter after having read it.
The thing that really got me was one of the stories that had a little brother
that had cancer and it made me think of my little brother and what would
my life be like without him. The day I read that story I went home and gave
him a big hug and I told him that I loved him.
The parts with thoughtful words and deep thoughts always make me think.
I love to read about people's problems and how they overcome them. I just
think that it is good to know that someone might be going through the
same problems with boys, parents, school, drugs and tons more things
that make your head spin every day, and things that you feel like there is
no way out of that situation.
All in all I thought it was a good book.
