INTRODUCTION

From Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul on Love & Friendship

Introduction

Dear Teens,

Since the first Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul book was released in 1997, we have been receiving hundreds of letters a day from teens like you—and possibly even you! We receive so many letters about love and friendship that we felt it was time to compile a book dedicated entirely to these two important subjects.

Love and friendship are top priorities for nearly everyone, but especially for teenagers. Your friends are almost as important as your family, and the lessons you learn from friends, boyfriends and girlfriends are lessons that shape who you are and who you will become as an adult.

The stories in this book are about relationships and the lessons we learn from them. It is our hope that you will see yourself in many of these stories, and that you will realize that you are not alone in the trials that come with any friendship or relationship. May you discover from these stories, and in your own life, how amazing friendships can be and how blessed we all are when love is a part of our lives.

We hope you enjoy reading this book and that you find comfort and guidance within these pages.

All our love, Kimberly, Jack and Mark
