When I was kid, I used to thing everything cganged on your teenth
birthday. I remember going to sleep and thinking when I woke up, I’d
be a totally different person. Teenager ! suddenly, I was going to be
like every cool character in the books I read and movies I watched.
The difference between seventeenth and teenth seemed hug.
Of course, when I woke up the morning of my teenth birthday, I
wasn’t any different. You learn quickly that just being one of them ---
teenager --- doesn’t change everything. But six years later, on the
morning of your seventeenth birthdaym you’re bound to look back,
realize how much you changed , and wonder when it happened.
Why did we call this book Chicken Soup for The Soul. Just for Teenagers ? Simple. Teenagers
really do need a book that’s just for them while so much is happening. Chicken soup for the
soul has always provided upport yo teens over the years, bu that different now, but the basic
struggles of teenagers stay the same. Who are my real friends? Where do I belong ? Why am
I so short or tall or big or small or ... different? And the age-old question : why doesn’t my skin
seem to understand that it’s Homecoming and I really can’t have a pimple ?
That’s where this book comes in. These are stories from real teenagers who are making their
way through the obstacle course right now. They’re having their first kisses and gettingtheir
heart broken. They’ere learning to be kind to others and to themselves. They’re finding their
place in life, the things they’re passionate about, and discovering just how much they love
their family, their pets, and their friends.
Within these pages, you won’t find out how to be pupular, or how to get good grades,
or even how to please your parents. What you will learn is how other teenagers felt about the
good and bad times they had. Maybe you’ll feel the same, or maybe you’ll feel different ---
but you definitely won’t feel alone.
I hope you enjoy these stories.
