Teens in high school have mainly moved past worrying about puberty and cliques, and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teens Talk High School focuses on issues and topics that matter to older teens.

Teens talk high school, sharing their stories about sports and clubs, driving, curfews, self-image and self-acceptance, dating and sex, family, friends, divorce, illness, death, pregnancy, drinking, failure, and preparing for life after graduation. High school students will find comfort and inspiration in this book, referring to it through all four years of high school, like a portable support group.

Disappointing

User Review  - LadyMother - Christianbook.com

The majority of this book was written by ladies. Though the stories are good it would have been more valuable if the book was balanced for girls AND boys. Not all of their problems are the same and young men need the input also. Read full review

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - jhop3 - LibraryThing

I recommend this text for high school students and parents of high school students. The emotional stories shared in this text will help teens cope with their struggles and their accomplishments. It lets them know they are not the only ones going through these challenging situations. Read full review
