To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I don't think I've ever read a Chicken Soup book I didn't enjoy, and even though this was bought for my daughter and for a much lower age group, I still enjoyed reading it. I got my daughter to start reading them a few years ago, and now we read them and pass them back and forth :)
I really loved this book. I like reading the kind of books where other people tell there story and you can relate to it. thats why i realy love this book because all of the story;s you can totally relate to and it has stories that are just like the real life and high scchool and the things you go through every day.When i read this book it helped me like deal with things because it had like stories and poems of things i would be going through right then and to know like other kids go through them too and like all friends can be the same. I always enjoy these books and when i read them i cant put them down.
I saw this book listed as one of Barnes and Nobles holiday gift ideas... and it is! I got several copies for all my friends who have teenagers (and for my teenage niece and nephews). The book does a wonderful job of getting the teenagers point of view across through the personal stories, reflections and interviews. It's not an adult's idea of what today's teenage experience is all about (let's face it, many of us are long past that trying time) but approaches it from their point of view and articulates in a readable entertaining format for adults and teens. Another great addition to this terrific series.
This is my 1st chicken soup book, and it is great! It has very good stories...some very, very sad. It gives you ways to deal with friends, and when they change, when you lose a friend, and many more things like that. I did only give it 4 stars because I think it could have been a little longer than what it is.
