The Real Deal: Friends: Best, Worst, Old, New, Lost, False, True and More (Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul)by Jack Canfield
Synopses & Reviews
School: It's frustrating, it's boring, it's embarrassing. But it's also thought provoking, challenging and full of possible friends. And until you turn 18, like it or not, it's just about your whole life.
So wha's the deal?
Chicken Soup for the Soul knows that school is more than classes and tests. It's also a social scene, filled with cliques, clubs and life-changing decisions (or so it seems this week). It's where you meet your best friends… and run into your worst enemies. And it’ s an opportunity to figure out what you want to do— whether it's kick a soccer ball, play the trombone or act in a play.
Sometimes it's overwhelming and confusing, but don't worry, it's like that for everyone. That's what the stories in this book are all about. They’ re from real teens, and they're about the bizarre, embarrassing and sometimes triumphant things that really happened to them. And they’ re here to give you some perspective on everything that goes down at your school...and outside of it, too.
Put that together with weird facts, cool graphics, fun advice and quizzes designed to help you figure out who you are and what you're up to, and you've got the real deal on school— full of all the laughter, tears and daily drama that life is all about. New cool format! More great stories!
Expanding the Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul books, this new series combines for-teens-by-teens stories with sidebars, quizzes, cool graphics, and straight teen-talk. This first title tackles the questions and fun times associated with school.
This second entry in the Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul series explores all facets of friendship--making friends, keeping them, fighting them, losing them, helping them, and competing with them.
This collection of stories written by teens for teens is full of insight and encouragement. With startling honesty and originality, teens tell it like it is about who they are, what they stand for, and what they believe truly matters in their lives.
Friends. You gotta have 'em, but sometimes they drive you crazy. You love 'em, but sometimes they make you mad. They'll help you through a crisis...unless they are the crisis.
So What's the Deal?
Friends are more than just the people you hang out with. They make you laugh, they keep your secrets, they offer advice (some good, some bad), they give you a shoulder to cry on. Sometimes they move away, or betray your trust, or flake out, but mostly they are the people who are always there for you. And they know you'll be there when they need you most. Because that's what it means to be a friend.
Sometimes friendship is overwhelming, sometimes it's confusing, sometimes you feel like you don't have a friend in the world, but don't worry, it's like that for everyone. That's what the stories in this book are all about. They're from real teens, and they're about the bizarre, difficult and wonderful things that really happened to them and their friends. Put that together with weird facts, cool graphics, fun advice and quizzes designed to help you figure out what you and your friends are all about, and you've got the real deal on friendship!
