Plot Summary:
Jack Canfield, author of the well known "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series, bring 'tweens with their own collection of stories, which they can relate to. In the introduction of this collection, is a note meant for 'tweens readers that not only guide them through these stories, but encourage them to take refuge in these tales when there is no one to talk or confine in. Moreover, this collection aims to provide 'tween readers with anecdotes and situations that will not only help them survive adolescence, but take joy in the small things that make all of the bad stuff get away.
This collection contains eleven sections that provide stories on the following themes: "Achieving Dreams," On Friendship," "On Family," "On Love," "On Death and Dying," "On Attitude and Perspective," "Overcoming Obstacles," "On Choices," "On Tough Stuff," "On Changes," and "Eclectic Wisdom." Clearly, with this diverse selection of themes, readers will not only learn a thing or two, but probably find a story that will not only capture their attention, but help them sort through their own problems.
