Chicken Soup for the Soul Inspires Teenagers to Be Their Best (Giveaway)

I’ve worked on Chicken Soup for the Soul books for many years, both as an editor and a coauthor, and some of the most interesting and inspirational ones to read are those for teenagers. The teen writers really pour out their hearts on issues such as friendship, school, romance, families, temptations, and more. I’ve never been surprised that the teen books are among the most popular in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. Teen readers can really relate to the true stories in these books, and adults get a better understanding of what’s going on in adolescents’ heads and hearts. So, I’m really excited to see that Chicken Soup for the Soul Publishing has come out with three brand-new books for tweens and teens. They include the following:

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk Middle School


This book offers candid stories from tweens about starting middle school, first crushes, mean girls and more. These inspiring stories remind readers that middle school is all about change, rolling with the punches and savoring the last few years of life as a kid.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk High School


These new stories about real life from teens deal with regrets and lessons learned, self-image and self-acceptance, family relationships and more. They remind readers that even though high school has its blemishes, it’s guaranteed that other teens are facing the same issues.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk Getting In . . . to College


This book offers the comfort that high school teens and their parents need during a crucial milestone in their lives. Filled with real stories about the pressures of applying to college, and how teens just like them overcame their doubts and fears, it’s the heartwarming “support group” that all high school applicants (and their parents) can turn to as they cram, apply, and eagerly wait to hear back from colleges across the country.

I’m also pleased to announce that I have one copy of each book to give away! To qualify, please leave a comment with this post telling me which book you’d like to win.
