This book shows and talks about the different parts of life. It tells stories about Love,Friendship,Family and Tough Times. This book can show you the way some people lived their life and the way they deal with it. I have really learned a lot of things from this book . Sometimes the stories can get a little sad but i guess thats the way some people just went through life. I know that I can relate to some of these stories because now as I am growing up as a teenager I start to see the difference ...more

سأضع له تقييماً عالي لأنني حين قرأته في صغري، أعتقد كنت في الثالثة عشر من عمري أو الرابعة عشر لا أتذكر جيداً. ولكنه كان من الكتب التي ساعدتني لأتخطى هذه المرحلة وأتعداها بجدارة وبنفسية جيدة.
رغم أن غالبية ظروف المراهقين العرب تختلف عن المراهقين الأجنبيين ولكن هناك إحساس بالفهم بأن على الرغم مما حدث لهم وعلى الرغم من إختلافه إلا أني كنت قادرة على فهمه والأحساس به.

During teenage growing process is like a flower. It grows very little when the weather is giving it hard time. It grows dramatically when weather is well fit for the plant. Every teenager circled whole global has happy, sad, quiet, ect moment. Moreover, teenage can be counted as one of hard time people go across because of becoming mature.

This book is same as other Chiken Soup books with different people written and edit by different authors. Teenagers with thoughtful mind writting down every bi

Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul is a series of books that are helpful to teenagers. They are books that nurture the soul and make you realize that there are other people who share some of the same experiences as you. I really liked this book because it kept me thinking about the situations some of these girls were in and i found that I have also been on some familiar situations. They are stories that can really capture someone's eye. I liked this book in particular because it was not like othe ...more

Once again, the Chicken Soup series does not fail to amaze me. Whether your going to heartbreak, death, separation, or even just life itself, there's at least one story that you can relate to in this book. It really does what it says, like how chicken soup heals you while your sick, the book heals your mind. It helps you to realize that your not alone in this world, and that while you may seem like your the only one suffering, there's so many other people in the world with the same problems. The ...more

This book was amazing. It is a nonfiction book that tells stories about how people dealt with situations. The best thing about the book is that it doesn't just have stories from one person it has stories from hundreds of different people. In the book you hear stories of romances and friendships and just being a teenager. The book helps get you through situations by showing you that there's always a good side to something.
I recommend this book to people who are struggling and would like to know

I'm not really a fan of the Chicken Noodle Soup books because personally I don't enjoy reading sappy novel-like books. This book changed my mind about the Chicken Noodle Soup books though. It makes me want to check out the other CNS for the Teen Soul book series.
The content: at times I would be disappointed to read some poems because as I've said I'm no fan of mushy-rhyming-writings. The stories I could relate to some since these are true-to-life stories written by teenagers. It's fun to read ab

As I was wondering through my house this weekend I stumbled upon Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul II and began to read. It is a collection of short stories and poems like the ones we (our English class) write in our writer's notebooks organized by their theme. All of them connect to at least one aspect of a teenagers life making them relatable and easy to read.
This is a great book to read when you are in the middle of another book or in between books because it contains tons of independent sto

Growing up is tough. Sometimes you just need to know that you're not alone out there. Which is why I think, on some levels, this book worked. The most invaluable lessons for me came from Mary Schmich's Ladies and Gentlemen of the Class of '97: Do one thing every day that scares you. Don't be reckless with other people's hearts. Keep your old letters. Dance, even if you have nowhere to do it but your own living room. Accept certain inalienable truths: Prices will rise. Politicians will philander. ...more

لهذا الكتب قيمة مختلفة
لم يكن اول كتاب أقرأه وانما كان أول كتاب اقتنية بمالي الخاص
أحببت بساطة السرد فيه .. والقيم التي يتحدث عنها
فصل الصداقة كان الابرز بالنسبة لي
قرأته قديما وعلقت في بالي بعض القصص
واحببته ولازلت اعود لأراجع بعض ماعلق .

Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul II is a very sad book. It tells accounts people who were in their teenage years and had many problems. These problems go from anorexia to depression and death. This book really got to me. Hearing the storys of children who have gone through so many things, some good some bad, that I can relate to. This book is a good book to read if you feel alone and think that no one can understand your problems. This book is good for all ages and even some of the accounts tha ...more

This is the second book of the chicken soup for the teenage soul series. It is also full of individual stories by actual teenagers. It explores many different topics and situations. Added in as a bonus is some poems. I read this first when I was a teenage girl and I remember it being a very interesting read. For teenagers it lets you know that you are not alone, everyone goes through something similar if not the same. Growing up is hard and becoming who you are to be is even harder.

I've had this book for a while and have read it several times but now it's time to move on.
It felt more pre-teen than teen, but perhaps that's because I'm not a teen anymore either?

The authors’ main purpose in writing this book was meant to help teenagers share their own stories about difficulties and triumphs in their lives. The stories are about rough situations and day to day challenges. These challenges include divorce, death, dating, and friendships. Many of these stories are relatable to the reader. The readers can see themselves in some of these stories which, in turn, can help them lead to answers to their own problems.

“Each day is an adventure in discovering the meaning of life. It is each little thing that you do that day - whether it be spending time with your friends, running in a cross-country meet or just simply staring at the crashing ocean- that holds the key to discovering the meaning of life. I would rather be out enjoying these things than pondering them. We may never really discover the meaning of life, but the knowledge we gain in our quest to discover it is truly more valuable. ” 66 likes
