Love. It's what young women think about most. Like finding and keeping good friends, sorting and sifting with Mom and Dad, playing with a favorite pet, and entering the exciting but uncertain world of romance. In Chocolate for a Teen's Heart, women and girls from all walks of life share their own true stories of first love, heartbreak, happiness, and gratitude for all the different kinds of lasting love in their lives.
At no other time is it more important to have the reassurance that we are not alone than in our teen years. They are sometimes difficult, filled with bittersweet but often delicious longing and hope for a special romantic love and friends with whom we can share our deepest secrets. These true tales -- whether they are about the agony of waiting for an invitation to the prom, the ecstasy of first love, the recollection of our most embarrassing moment, or the unexpected twists and turns of friendships -- capture the emotional roller coaster we all face as teenagers. These storytellers will warm your heart as they reveal how they tested boundaries, pushed the limits as far as they could go, and ultimately learned to cherish those things they hold most dear.
Share these pages with friends and family, one at a time, or all at once. They will serve as a road map as you seek love and happiness in your own life. Funny and poignant, sweet and delicious, Chocolate for a Teen's Heart will have you laughing and crying as you read each storyteller's journey, and cheering as she ultimately comes out on top.
