Chicken Soup for the Preteen Soul: 101 Stories of Changes, Choices and Growing Up for Kids, ages 9-13 is rated 4.8571 out of 5 by 7.

From remembering their own life experience or to watching their own children grow, most people recognize that the preteen years, ages nine to thirteen, can be one of the most awkward times in life-a period of tremendous physical and emotional change. At this age, youngsters are eager to leave the "kid" stage, yet are uncertain about what adolescence will bring; they''d rather listen to peers over parents, and hear all too often to "wait until you''re older." Chicken Soup for the Preteen Soul will guide kids through this transition.

Written by and for preteens, this uplifting collection of stories touches on the emotions and situations they experience every day: making and losing friends, fitting in while keeping their personal identity, discovering the opposite sex, dealing with pressures at school including violence, and coping with family issues such as divorce.

Chapters include: On Love, On Family, On Friendship, On Choices, On Changes, On Overcoming Obstacles, Eclectic Wisdom, Tough Stuff, Attitude and Perspective and Achieving Dreams. Contributors indclude: *NSYNC, Mia Hamm, Beverley Mitchell and Karl Malone.

Whether first-time Chicken Soup readers or "graduates" of the bestselling Kid''s Soul book, preteens are sure to include this in their backpacks and book bags.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Really Liked It" This by far is my favorite Chicken Soup. The dialogue in it is good, and most of the stories really just leave me there thinking. I just sit there for awhile and think after I finish these stories. I think 'What Just Happened in This Story?' and I usually say don't buy these types of books (anthologies) but today I'd say you should buy this second hand because let me tell you that this book is truly a moving story split into a few parts.

Read from the Book

My Best Enemy Examine the contents, not the bottle. The Talmud Once again, I was in a new school. So was a girl in my class named Paris. That''s where the similarities ended. I was tall, with a big, moony face. She was petite and skinny with a model''s delicate features. My thick, black hair had been recently cut short into a shag style. Her natural caramel blonde hair flowed to her waist and looked great when she flipped it around. I was twelve and one of the oldest in the class. She was eleven and the youngest in the class. I was awkward and shy. She wasn''t. I wore baggy overalls, sweatshirts and lime-green hiking boots. Paris wore rhinestone platform shoes, little twirly skirts and expensive, size-one designer jeans. I couldn''t stand her. I considered her my enemy. She liked me. She wanted to be friends. One day, she invited me over and I said yes. I was too shocked to answer any other way. My family had moved six times in six years, and I had never managed to develop many friendships. No one had invited me over to play since I was young enough to actually play. But this girl who wore tinted lip-gloss and the latest fashions wanted me to go home with her after school. She lived in a fun part of town that had two pizza places, an all-night bookstore, a movie theater and a park.
