This latest offering in the best-selling Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul
series explores a host of challenges faced by today's teens. Within its
pages teens will find portraits of life's complexities expressed from the
viewpoint of their peers. Teen contributors share their thoughts and feelings on
difficult issues, ranging from poor self-image to thoughts of suicide, from
family discord to coping with the loss, from peer pressure to school violence.
Teens ranked stress as one of their top concerns (along with child abuse and
STDs). Oftentimes, the pressure can feel overwhelming, whether they involve
worrying about an upcoming test, competition sports, family responsibilities,
dating, or more extreme issues such as depression, suicide and school violence.
The first three volumes of the Teenage Soul series and the companion
journal illustrate the ongoing popularity of this series (unit sales exceed 11
million). Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul on Tough Stuff and the Spring
2001 release Teenage Soul Letters will undoubtedly follow suit as the
next best-sellers in a phenomenally popular series.
