Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul's the Real Deal : Friends : Best, Worst, Old, New, Lost, False, True, and MoreBook - 2006
A latest edition to the teen Chicken Soup series focuses on the ups and downs of friendships: making them, keeping them, fighting them, losing them, helping them, and competing with them. The second book in the breakthrough series gives teens the real scoop on the ups and downs of friendship in a stylish package complete with sidebars, quizzes, cool graphics and, of course, great stories from teens for teens. The Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul books have sold more than 15 million copies, and they continue to be the strongest selling Chicken Soup backlist. This new series keeps the best of the old (the stories teens love) with the best of the new-ldquo; teen talk; text breaks, splashy graphics, sidebars, quizzes and other cool features. The second book in the series, after The Real Deal School, explores all facets of the classic obsessions of every child from ages 9-19. And there are no lectures here: this is the straight talk from teens for teens that this audience loves. Friends, you gotta have 'em, but sometimes they drive you crazy. You love 'em, but sometimes they make you mad. They'll help you through a crisis...unless they are the crisis. So What's the Deal? Friends are more than just the people you hang out with. They make you laugh, they keep your secrets, they offer advice (some good, some bad), they give you a shoulder to cry on. Sometimes they move away, or betray your trust, or flake out, but mostly they are the people who are always there for you. And they know you'll be there when they need you most. Because that's what it means to be a friend. Sometimes friendship is overwhelming, sometimes it's confusing, sometimes you feel like you don't have a friend in the world, but don't worry, it's like that for everyone. That's what the stories in this book are all about. They're from real teens, and they're about the bizarre, difficult and wonderful things that really happened to them and their friends. Put that together with weird facts, cool graphics, fun advice and quizzes designed to help you figure out what you and your friends are all about, and you've got the real deal on friendship!
