  What People Are Saying About

  Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul II . . .

  "The idea of teenagers writing about their experiences to help other teenagers is brilliant. It's about time a book came out that portrays teens as the intelligent, insightful people they are."

  Will Friedle

  actor, Boy Meets World

  "The stories in this book are amazingly touching. It's great to see a book that can act almost like a friendbut I must say, even though it's for 'the teenage soul,' I think it's really for 'the human soul'."

  Scott Vickaryous

  actor, Breaker High

  "This is the perfect book for teenagers. Every single story was a story I could have written about my own life. I loved reading about what other people did in the same situation and I loved the positive feelings that I felt after reading them."

  Jim, 16

  "I loved this book and I really didn't think they could do a second one that would be as good as the first one. I was very pleasantly surprised, though, because this book is not only as good as the first oneit is better! This one has more stories about teenage relationships and other things that we love to read about."

  Jamie, 18

  Page iv

  "Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul II was so good. I am just upset because I waited so long for this book to come out and now I have to wait for the next one. I read it in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. Please hurry up with the next one."

  Carry, 14

  "This book is filled with exactly the kind of stories teenagers want to read. They are written by other teenagers, which is great, and they are about things like boyfriends and friends. The stories are so good. I cried or laughed or both during each one."

  Kristin, 15

  "My favorite chapter was the one on relationships. It was interesting to read about what girls are thinking and feeling in relationships. I also like the stories that were written by guys. I was thinking while reading them that I might even write a story for the next book."

  Jason, 16

  "This is the kind of book you can read over and over again. I read it through completely and now I am going to go back to my favorites and read them again. I imagine I will like different stories at different times, depending on what I am going through."

  Mitch, 17

  "This book speaks directly to teenagers. It lets us know that we are all feeling the same kinds of feelings and going through the same kinds of things. It feels good to know that you're not alone."

  Ashley, 14

  With love, we dedicate this book to our children

  who are teenagers now, or soon to be:

  Jesse, Christopher, Melanie and Elisabeth.

  May you live every minute of your teenage years

  with gratitude for this most exciting time of life.

  We also dedicate this book to

  all the teenagers who read the first book,

  who sent in stories and poems and took the time

  to send us wonderful thank-you letters.

  Finally, we dedicate this book to God,

  from whom all blessings flow.
