Are you a teenager? Ever had some hardships in life that you just can't get over? Such as: love, death, and other situations. In Chicken Soup For The Teenage Soul, there are many short biographies of teenagers. They tell about hard times that they have experienced and how they healed their pain and grief. This book is a wonderful book for any teenager who is or has experienced a hardship. Some times reading about other people's troubles just like yours can help you heal or give you an answer on how you can help yourself heal. I recommend this book to any teenager who has gone through hardships and needs to recover. This book can and will help most teenagers with their troubles.

This book was great. It made me cry at one time and make me crack up laughing at anther. The writing was okay but since they have teenagers send in there personal stories it¿s only okay writing. There are no set characters but the writing is so deep its kind of makes up for it. This book could not get more real. Teenagers send in their story about something and it goes straight into the book. So it¿s like your best friend telling you something that happened to her. This book was the first book I have ever cried well I was reading it. This book was unforgettable because it¿s a like a life long lesson from your parents you'll never forget. This book is great for discussion novel because it¿s something your parents or siblings can relate to.

The poem called 'Moonlight ride' is such a good influence on younger children for not drinking and driving. I thought it was a really good poem. If you have a friend who drinks tell them to read this story.

Review by: Rachael Tough Topics: people consider suicide, love, life, sorrow. Over the last few weeks I¿ve been reading Chicken Noodle Soup for the Teenage Soul. In this book there are no story lines or characters there are only stories of people¿s love, life and family. My favorite was a poem called ¿Listen¿ by an anonymous writer. I liked it, because it was about someone who had a friend who would only give them advice when they asked them to listen. My least favorite was a poem called ¿Mamma¿s Hands¿ by another anonymous writer. I did not like it, because it was comparing two women¿s hands, rich, and poor.Teenagers who need a good read or just some advice should consider this book. This book offers advice and guidance. These poems and stories inspired me and helped me understand the other ways of life. In the section on love and kindness I feel that¿s more like a thing for girls, but family and wellness is more for boys and girls. There isn¿t really a section for boys in this book, it¿s all mainly for girls, I think.I would give this book a 4, because I didn¿t like all of the other sections besides love and kindness. This section had some great stories and some great poems as well. Another reason I give this book a four is because it didn¿t have chapters or any storylines you had to follow. This book is easy to read. Review by: grouchy i'm not trying to invalidate the stories themselves but the writing is crap. these people have been through tough times but its hard to take them seriously when the writing is so bad.i read and re-read this book trying to find out what the big deal was but the only thing i found was sucky writing skills and quite a few cliche stories... Review by: Hell on Earth i think that this is a great book. it helped me get through some tough times in my life. yes it may seen a little crappy in some places but thats how some books are. some people dont even appreciate the poetry at all. Review by: happyperson an amusing book if you like memoirs. Also, if you're bored. pretty good in general. Review by: tori this book has helped me through a lot of hard times

I thought I was going to hate this book, but I actually found it very inspiring at times. Some of the stories made me cry and others made me laugh out loud. It was a good reminder of how glad I am not to be a teen, but at the same time I realized how much more life there is to live. I would recommend this book to any student. I think the book offered something for everyone, even those who aren't teens anymore.

I enjoyed reading this novel.

I gave Chicken Soup four stars for Fantastic! This book had so many well written stories filled to the rim with emotion and hearts spilled onto the paper. the many stories written by kids for kids offer advice on everything any kid has gone through, is going through, and/or will go through. This is a great addition to the phenomenal Soup collection. Chicken Soup's never a disappointment, and has earned its rights to be child's best friend when there's no one around to talk to.

This book was very well written. All the stories posted by teenagers like me, alllowed myself to open up to what they were explaining about. Pretty much what Im saying is this book is a great read. And it can really remind you of who you are.
