Teen Pick of the Week: Chicken Soup

Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul on Tough Stuff: Stories of Tough Times and Lessons Learned by Jack Canfield
Many of these stories were written by teens and provide comfort and support to their peer readers. Tough Stuff was a chapter in the previous series Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul and includes more challenging issues and experiences of being a teenager, such as drugs and alcohol, rejection, loss of friendships and relationships, death, suicide, divorce, physical and emotional abuse, and eating disorders. Although the content of these stories is often disturbing and sometimes tragic, the potential for insight, learning and "growing up" is enormous.
