Chicken Soup for the Soul - Just for Teenagers - Book Review & Giveaway


I used to read Chicken Soup for the Soul a lot when I was a teenager.  I would run to the book store and find ones that were even slightly relevant to my life just to be able to read through and find stories that lifted my spirits, touched my heart and inspired me to be a better person.  That's why I am honored, as a parent now myself, to share these incredible books with my son and you, my loyal Shopaholics!

What is Chicken Soup for the Soul - Just for Teenagers?
Chicken Soup for the Soul is a widely popular book series featuring stories of inspiration and support.  They have several different books in the series, aimed at different groups such as Pet Lovers, Preteens, Mothers, and so on.  
Chicken Soup for the Soul - Just for Teenagers is aimed at children 13-19 and full of incredible stories of triumph, overcoming obstacles and finding yourself.  It provides hope and support at a crucial time in a child's life.  Just to be able to read a story similar to what you're going through is an incredible relief to some, just to know they're not alone in their struggles.  They cover several different areas including friendship, setting and reaching your goals, liking yourself, and others.  According to their site, "Teenage years are tough, but this book will help teens as they journey through the ups and downs of adolescence.  Chicken Soup for the Soul : Just for Teenagers provides support and inspiration for teenagers as they grow up, reminding them they're not alone, as they read stories from teens just like themselves about problems and issues they face everyday.  This collection will encourage, inspire, and amuse teens, showing that, as tough things get, they are not alone!"

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Just for Teenagers - $9.49 on Amazon
My Review
I've always loved the Chicken Soup for the Soul series so I was very excited when they asked me to review for them.  When I started reading them there were only a few in the series, now they've published a Chicken Soup for everyone in pretty much any situation!  I love the fact that I loved them as a child and now I can share them with my son!  
I was asked to review Chicken Soup for the Soul - Just for Teenagers and it brought back a lot of memories, both good and bad, from when I was in high school.  I love that there are 101 different stories of overcoming obstacles, memorable firsts and stories of inspiration and support.  In certain situations, it's comforting to know others are going through the same experience.  It's also a relief, as a parent, to know that my son has these stories to inspire him the way they did for me when I was younger.  I love Chicken Soup for the Soul and Just for Teenagers is a must read for parents of teens and teens themselves!  I highly recommend this book!
Shopaholic Rating: 5 out of 5 Shopping Bags - Full of supportive, true stories, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Just for Teenagers is a wonderful resource for any parent!
