Life Lessons for All of Us from Chicken Soup for the Preteen Soul 21st Anniversary Edition

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul. So you remember middle school, right? And the cafeteria? And the groups? And changing your friends? And how everything was changing and it was sometimes exciting but also—too often—painful? It’s funny how those experiences taught us a lot about how to conduct our lives going forward. And that’s why I loved putting together the new revised and updated edition of Chicken Soup for the Preteen Soul—our 21st Anniversary Edition! The new collection has just come out and it’s filled with such wisdom—the stuff we learned in middle school that we need to refer back to now. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
