Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk (Giveaway)

In one of the latest series of Chicken Soup for the Soul books, Teens Talk shares heartwarming stories written by kids just like yours. What a great way for children to see that they’re not alone in their sometimes confusing world.


Teens Talk: Middle School - The stories in this book cover topics important to the 12 to 14-year-old age range, including regrets and lessons learned, discovering the opposite sex, cliques and popularity, and new privileges and responsibilities such as jobs, cell phones, and grades.

Teens Talk: High School - Stories in this book cover topics important to the 14 to 18-year-old range, including regrets and lessons learned, dating and sex, family relationships, applying to college, and preparing for life after high school.

Teens Talk: Getting In . . . to College - The stories in the book are written by kids who have been there and want to pass on their words of support to the kids behind them.  Stories cover topics such as parental and peer pressure, the stress of grades and SATs/ACTs, college applications and interviews, recruiting, disappointments and success.  These stories provide moral support and encouragement to high school students going through one of the most stressful events of their lives.  Parents will find Getting In…to College a great source of support and inspiration as well.


Each of these books contain 101 true stores written by real kids. It’s a candid and honest look into their lives and helps parents and other kids understand the unique dynamics involved in each age group.

As a parent of younger children, I really appreciated the “look into the future” and what’s yet to come in my daughter’s lives. Everything from friendships, crushes, tough times, following your dreams, graduation, peer pressure, college interviews and entrance exams. Ahh . . . the teenage years.

What I really liked was that the stories were written by everyday kids. I think this is important in helping to make other kids relate to these experiences and see themselves in the same situations. We all know that kids face right and wrong decisions every day and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk is a great resource tool in helping them make the right choices.
