I have been lucky enough to share several Chicken Soup for the Soul books with you all this spring and summer.  I am a big fan of these books.  The stories are inspiring and just the balm for what ails you at any given time in your life.  They make you laugh, cry and provide insight and advice.  The Chicken Soup books never disappoint!  Today I am pleased to tell you about a brand new title in the series...Chicken Soup for the Soul:  Just for Teenagers.  Here is the scoop...

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!

I didn't enjoy lunchtime - never enough time to eat, not very good food to choose from in line, and the stress of who to eat with! alicedemskehansen at gmail.com

Roughest thing for me was just not feeling like I had much in common with anyone!!

I can't even imagine how bad the cliques at an all girls school must be. I would have to say the toughest thing for me was not having close friends.

I had no idea there were so many of these books. I like the "shaping the new you" one.

I remember the guilt of my friend being bullied and I was too scared to really stand up for her properly. I didn't know what to say or how to deal with it because I was afraid her bullies would target me. I still think about that time and feel terrible that I didn't do more to make her feel safe or more supported. :(

I remember a guy who I swore who I was in love with (and maybe I still am) would be mean to me in front of his friends or online with his friends, but when it was just us, he was completely different. It was like he didn't want his friends knowing he was talking to me. I also remember the peer pressure to have sex. I'm so glad I made it out of high school alive and I just BARELY made it at that. I really wish that teenagers would know that it does get better and all of the stuff that everyone thinks matters in high school really doesn't once you get out.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: What I Learned from the Cat: 101 Stories about Life, Love and Lessons is another book I am interested in.

I had alot of trouble clicking with others, I wasn't rich and didn't have the money for the things others kids my age did so it made it very difficult in school. I was the one being teased!

Something tough I remember from being a teen was trying to find where to fit in amongst all the cliques.
