Book Description

Oct. 1 1998 Chicken Soup for the Soul (Book 2)

Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul II offers more inspiring stories to help you master the game we call life. Today's teens have ever more issues and social pressures to juggle than young adults just 20 years ago. This book, like its predecessor, can be your guide - a beacon in the darkness, a safe haven in a storm, a warm hug in the cold and a respite from loneliness. There's no preaching as to what you should and shouldn't do. Instead, this book is full of teens sharing their experiences on learning to accept like, becoming the best person you can be, being happy with who you are, and loving yourself - no matter what.



Product Details


Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 7-12-Four talented, youthful narrators read selected stories from this popular best seller. Written by teens, these anecdotes share experiences of growing up with families, of grieving for a death, and of relationships with peers. The vignettes present challenges of life showing that others have had similar experiences. While comforting to realize one is not alone, they also illustrate behaviors from which other young adults can learn. All the speakers have clear enunciation and speak expressively without getting emotional. Usually the narrators alternate between stories, sometimes following a musical interlude. Using several narrators makes a pleasant variety that enhances interest. The performance of a few of the stories is enhanced by the use of two speakers reading different parts within the same story. The recording could be used very effectively to motivate students to read the book on their own.

From Booklist

According to the introduction, overwhelming requests from readers of previous Chicken Soup editions and voluminous submissions of other teens' personal stories inspired this newest offering. No doubt, the series' New York Times best seller status and impressive library circulation were added incentives. Like many inspirational books from multiple (mostly non-professional) writers, Soul II's selections vary in quality. Some stories in each of the eight thematically organized sections are truly poignant and masterfully written. Others, though sincere, seem trite and melodramatic. Yet even the essays likely to make adult readers cringe share youthful insights that will resonate with truth for many teens. More important, in every case the editors remain true to their promise to take the teen reader on "a journey of becoming your best self." Besides the brief essays that make up the bulk of the text, poems, cartoons, and quotations add variety to the reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chicken soup for the teenage soul II Feb. 15 2004
Format:Paperback
Chicken soup for the teenage soul II¡Xa book of love, life and learning by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Kimberly Kirberger made the #1 New York Times bestseller list and made my list of meaningful books.
In a way Chicken soup made me feel that I am not the only one left alone with all my teenage problems. There are a lot of kids my age out there who are dealing with the exact same problems and more.
The importance of this book is not to read all those love or sad stories that you usually see in movies, but actually to relate many of these real experiences in your life! It¡s like a guidebook, an instruction book or a reference guide that you can always flip back to when you¡re having a hard time. These experiences can be used to consult the way other teens have struggled through situations that we might encounter and help us to develop our own path to solving our problems.
Another reason I would recommend this book is that its inspirational stories can help counter all the negative stories we get from the media. It gives people the other side of the story that there is hope for the human race.
There is one shocking story of bravery that stuck in my mind called ¡§Hero of the ¡Hood¡, about Mike Powell, whose mother, Cheryl, was fifteen when she had Mike. Fonso, Mike¡s father, had psychological problems, and after he was released from prison, he forced Mike to do pushups for hours when Mike was only four. When Mike was barely eight, Fonso was murdered, and Cheryl brought home Marcel who was even worse and got her hooked on cocaine. Marcel was violent and often did horrible things to all Cheryl¡s kids.

For those many readers who liked the first edition of Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul, here comes yet another helping, with 101 more stories on subjects such as love, friendship, random acts of kindness, etc. This volume contains even more poems that you can read quickly when you just need a boost of self-confidence. This book has even more stories on relationships, how to overcome obstacles and learning important lessons. I have to say that I liked this Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul better than the previous ones, because there is even more stories dealing with tough stuff such as anorexia, divorce, etc. Each story is unique in its own way but one thing is for sure: each story touches the reader and makes them stop and think about how all of their actions have consequences, some good, some bad.
Jennifer Love Hewitt contributed yet another story for this book, as well as Andrew Keegan and Elisa Donovan. I strongly encourage teenagers, pre-teens and even adults to read this book in order to better understand the feelings teenagers' are experiencing, and how to deal with these often confusing emotions. Lovers for the Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul will not be disappointed, especially when they learn that a Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul III is also in stores.

Format:Paperback
Chicken Soup is an awesome book for any reader. The book is filled with amazing stories. Each one tells of everyday trials and tribulations through which we all go. The writers must also be commended for their courage in sharing their stories with millions of readers.
One of my favorite stories is called Starlight, Starbright. It is about a young girl who is in love with a sixteen-year-old boy. She is afraid to tell him how she feels because she knows he may reject her. However, the feeling becomes too strong for her to handle. She must tell him how she feels. Thus, on one starry night, she goes for it. She reveals everything to him, and to her surprise, he feels exactly the same way.
For me, this story just gave me a push in the right direction. It makes it known that, sometimes, we just have to go for what we want no matter what. It just may happen that it will work out that one time. Although I still have not had the courage to do something so bold, the story has given me hope that one day I will. I just hope that it has had this same effect on all of its readers.
