Chicken Soup for the Soul Giveaway: Extraordinary Teens

This giveaway is now closed. The winners are Michael, Kelly Kim, & Cindy. Congratulations!

In one of the latest books of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, Extraordinary Teens, you’ll read some very inspiring stories from some of today’s most inspiring youths like Kari Byron, Ryan Cabrera, Anna Kournikova, Timmy Reyes, Brenda Song, and Donald Trump Jr. just to name a few.


Chicken Soup for the Soul: Extraordinary Teens inspires teens with stories from the young people they admire. These extraordinary teens, mostly celebrities, share their troubles and triumphs, as well as what they do to continue to achieve.  More than fifty celebrity contributors, including a special story from Sean Covey, author of Seven Habits for Highly Effective Teens.


What a great book for any teen! These inspirational stories will touch your heart and make you strive to become a better person. Each story starts with a “Quick Facts” section about the author which gives you an idea of how they got to where they are today.

Each chapter also includes an inspirational quote. My favorite is “You’re never too young to do what you love.” How true! I believe that children can realize their passions at an early age. Given the right guidance and support, this passion can turn into something wonderful.

Some other topics covered in this book are:

  • How to use all your talents and strengths
  • How to find a mentor
  • How to believe in yourself
  • How to keep a positive outlook
  • How to overcome challenges
  • How to have fun while pursuing your passion!

The best part is that because these celebrity teens are popular with the young crowd, kids are more likely to read and believe their stories. I know Girlie Girl did. She loves Brenda Song in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and was really impressed with her theory that true success is just being happy in life. What a great life lesson.
