I love a ton of books, as most of you might know, but Chicken Soup for the Girl's Soul is one of my particular favorites. The book is made up of several stories written by real teenage girls who have actually gone through that phase in life. It gave me great tips and lessons, and made me feel as though I'm not the only one out there that is having problems. It made me realize that there are other teenage girls out there other than me.
The girls that wrote the stories were amazing writers. They really poured out there souls into their individual stories, and I was really touched. There are stories about making new friends in middle school, peer pressure, hard times, family changes, and even ones that were written "just for fun".
There's also many comics in the book, to add humor to it all and make you feel at ease. Othe books in the series are Chicken Soup for the Soul and Chicken Soup for the Preteen Soul. I recommend reading it, especially if you're a girl! =)
