Chicken Soup for the Soul – Just for Preteens review and giveaway!

Here is another giveaway in the August Back-to-School Giveaway Bash!

  I remember being 12.  I had just moved schools for the second time in a year.  I was a bit shy.  I had skipped a grade in elementary school which made me younger than my peers, and that was awkward in Jr. High (yes, at 12).  And life just seemed tough.  (Oh, if only now the most difficult thing I had to deal with was getting lost on the way to the library!!!)

Do you know a preteen?  Do you have a preteen?  If so, you should consider getting them Chicken Soup for the Soul – Just for Preteens.  It’s full of stories of encouragement, support, inspiration and a whole lotta “been there, done that” from other kids.  If anything, it will help your preteen learn that the world will not end and they will not surely die if they get lost trying to find the library in a new school!

I recommend story #79 – My Daughter the Cat to help your preteen understand why they think the world will end and they will surely die if something seemingly insignificant happens to them.  :)

Chicken Soup for the Soul has generously offered to give away a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul – Just for Preteens to one of my readers!

I was provided with a copy of this book for review.  I received no monetary compensation for this post.  All views expressed are my own.  (And I really did get lost trying to find the library in the 8th grade!)

When I was 12 I remembered riding the school bus watching a boy rip up a note to his parents on the first day of school.

When I was 12 my family moved to another state. It was hard to move at that age because most of the kids had been together since elementary school.

I remember thinking it was the worst that my mom refused to let me start shaving my legs. (Everyone else was)

That was the year my parents separated and I got my first B ever. What a rough year.

I remember that the boys wouldn’t let me play football anymore because I “became” a girl to them.

12 was a hard age I couldn’t wait to be 13. I thought that meant everything would change. I didn’t realize that happened at 30. :)

At 12 I remember having a crush on two twin boys in my class and they said they thought I was pretty but I was too tall bc I was always a full head taller than pretty much everyone in my class growing up including them until later middle school (but then I was put in modeling and they regretted not having given me a chance when THEY had the chance tee hee ) and the boys finally grew and passed me in height and now I love being tall but at 12 I was heartbroken I was tall and thought I always would be.
