Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul illustration will appear here.

Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul is a selection of short stories for teenagers on love life, friendship and Tough stuff. These stories share valuable lessons from Bill Cosby, Jennifer Love Hewitt and even other teens.

I thought the book was great! It had lots of interesting stories that I enjoyed reading. Every story teaches you something new and every once in awhile in the book they?ll show a political cartoon that is a joke but also goes along with the story in the book that is next to be read. One of my favorite stories from the selection was about Jennifer Love Hewitt. She is going to a children?s hospital as a part of the fundraiser to visit sick kids. She meets a young boy that has cancer and is very sad. She stays with him and tells him some inspiring words that cheer up the young boy and also teaches her a very important lesson.

I would recommend this book to teenagers that enjoy reading about other people in different situations. You would also like this book if you like to read short stories.
