Giveaway ~ Chicken Soup for the Soul Extraordinary Teens

When I received these books, my 12 year old saw that Brenda Song from Suite Life of Zack & Cody was on the cover.  She was like, "Mom, can I please have this?"  Now this is coming from a girl that absolutely HATES reading.  I was like yeah, of course!

Personal stories combined with photos and specific advice from the contributors.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Extraordinary Teens inspires teens with stories from the young people they admire.

I would absolutely love to win this for my 13 yr old daughter who has just recently entered into the lovely teenage years and I know that I am really in for it thinking back about me in those days!! LOL She is a good kid right now at 13, and I pray that she stays that way!!
Alot of parents today do not really care where their kids are at 3 in the morning, and kick them out of the house at a very early age. They do not have jobs, therefore they steal and get into all kinds of trouble just to survive. Reading this would be a benefit to my daughter I think!
