Shonnabella's review of: Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul: 101 Stories of Life, Love and Learning (Chicken Soup for the Soul Series)
I think everyone can agree that the teen years are trying, at best. I moved around a lot and used to get picked on a lot. My escape was always in my studies and in books. This was one that I always found to be inspiring. It always made me think of how I was treating others and reminded me that I was not the only one out there having a tough time. It gave me hope that everything would get better and that there were still good people out there.
I think this book can open the heart of any teenager, even just a little bit. It makes them see things from a different angle and I think that's a phenomenal learning tool for teenagers, as they seem to be extremely stubborn and seemingly omniscient in that time period.
I'd recommend this to any teenager, but especially to those who were having a hard time with the tough years, as a promise that it WILL get better!
