In "Chicken Soup For The Teenage Soul", every teenager can relate to and learn from, but without being criticized or judged. Stories include important lessons on the nature of friendship and love, belief in the future, and the value of respect for yourself and others. The main idea of the book is that there is 101 stories about life, love, and learning written by people around the world but rolled into one book. All of the short stories inspire you about the many challenges in life that people go through. The passage I chose was "Life is about who you love and who you hurt. It's about how you feel about yourself. It's about trust, happiness and compassion. It's about what you say and what you mean. It's about seeing people for who they are and not what they have." I chose this passage because it is a really good quote to live by and learn from. I recommend this book because it shows how other people run into problems, it's not just you. It explains how to overcome them.
