How Teenagers Can Transform Themselves by Trying New Things

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul. Time for a little history… When Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul was published in 1997 it quickly became the go-to source of comfort and advice for a whole generation of teenagers, selling more than ten million copies around the world. That book has continued to support teenagers as they go through their adolescence and remains one of our most popular titles. Now we’ve revised and updated it with three dozen new stories added to the existing, classic stories from the first edition, including ones about being a teenager during the pandemic, social media and technology, and many other modern-day issues. Stories that were out of date were removed, so that teenagers will not feel like they’re reading their parents’ Chicken Soup for the Soul instead of their own.  Learn more about your ad choices.
