Item description for Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul : The Real Deal School (Chicken Soup for the Soul) by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen & Deborah Reber...
Overview Provides inspirational stories from teenagers on the topic of school.
School: It's frustrating, it's boring, it's embarrassing. But it's also thought provoking, challenging and full of possible friends. And until you turn 18, like it or not, it's just about your whole life.
So wha's the deal?
Chicken Soup for the Soul knows that school is more than classes and tests. It's also a social scene, filled with cliques, clubs and life-changing decisions (or so it seems this week). It's where you meet your best friends…and run into your worst enemies. And it’s an opportunity to figure out what you want to do—whether it's kick a soccer ball, play the trombone or act in a play.
Sometimes it's overwhelming and confusing, 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, embarrassing and sometimes triumphant things that really happened to them. And they’re here to give you some perspective on everything that goes down at your school...and outside of it, too.
Put that together with weird facts, cool graphics, fun advice and quizzes designed to help you figure out who you are and what you're up to, and you've got the real deal on school—full of all the laughter, tears and daily drama that life is all about.
New cool format!

A Teen's Best Resource Jul 31, 2006
Reviewed by Cathy Yanda for Reader Views (07/06)
This book will remind everyone who reads it that we all have challenges in our lives and even when they seem like more than we can handle, we can face them and overcome them. True to the Chicken Soup series, this book full of beautifully written, true-life stories and poems. "Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul's The Read Deal: Challenge" lets you read what other teenagers have to say about disses, losses, messes, stresses and more. This book should be on every teen's bookshelf - just in case they want to read it. If there had been a resource like this when I was a teenager, I'd have been more prepared for many things - from peer pressure to have sex and use drugs to my parents' divorce. This is not an advice book. It is a book written by teens for teens in their own words, and they touched me deeply. One of my favorites, titled `Silent Scream', written by Ashley, a 16 year old, about being an emotional basket case. This poem could have been written about me when I was her age. I cried when I read `Chain Reaction' written by 19-year-old Megan about the mugging and death of her best friend.
Challenges are a part of each of our lives. It is difficult enough to be a teenager with raging hormones without having to also forgive your best friend for being with the guy who broke your heart or having your dad die or being the shortest kid in class or failing a class. Each chapter includes stories, poems, self-quizzes, and tidbits about movies to see and books to read. Topics include everything from anorexia, cutting yourself, abuse, peer pressure, being stabbed in the back by a friend and much more. This book is not one to be read straight through but to savor the writing on each page, to be referred to when the need arises. It is a valuable resource for parents to help you understand what your teenagers and tweens might be going through. It is well-written, composed of just enough information to be valuable and yet not be overwhelming, and on a level that will easily speak to the teenager in your life.

After reading this book, I found all of the stories included in this compilation very touching. I liked how each short story aimed to teach a little life lesson. The inspiration that these stories carried along with them made me realize how much this book was worth reading. I also enjoyed reading the quizzes and tidbits of information on various topics. The only complaint I would have against this book would be the authors' anecdotes from their own lives. They attempted to relate to teens, but fell short when it came to accuracy. It has been a while since they have been teenagers, and many things have changed in high school. Not only that, but their stories proved to be a bit dull. Other than that, I really did enjoy reading this book, and I look forward to reading other books in this series.

Are you a teen looking for some answers? Well if you are then I have the perfect book for you. When I read the book Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul: The Real Deal it changed my way of thinking. I started understanding life more and why it is so hard. And now I better understand when people say it's a rough world out there. I am only twelve and I have a lot more to learn about the world and this book has help me understand a little more about it. This book has a lot you can learn from for example this book has poems, sort stories, and even some facts. This book is written by different teenagers that wished to share some stories. The book has stories of friendships, body changes, and even dating. So I reccommend this non-fiction book to everyone who's ready to grow up...

A MUST READ FOR TEENS Oct 25, 2005
I think that this book is better then some of the other Chicken Soup books because it specializes on one topic instead of being so broad like the other books. Also, I could definitely relate to this book more then other teenage Chicken Soup books, making this book more enjoyable for me. Being a younger teen, school was one of the few topics I could relate to in the other Chicken Soup books, so to produce a book like this, it was really helpful. This book still contains stories from teens, but the author contributes more to book. It has many more side bars, and is much more colorful (although it still doesn't have any pictures). This book contains easy to read information about peer pressure, best friends and fighting with them, making new friends, moving away, cliques and much, much more. I would really recommend this book to anyone over the age of eleven years old. You don't necessarily have to be struggling in school to read Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul Real Deal: School, it's a good read for anyone who likes reading this kind of material.
AWESOME!! Oct 21, 2005
If you are like me, and are really careful with your money and aren't sure if u want this book because your worried your going to waste your money. TRUST ME, you will not waste it!! This is a MUST READ!! As I was reading this book, the whole time I was going "EXACTLY!! FINALLY SOMEONE UNDERSTANDS WHAT WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH EVERYDAY!!!" because seriously, teen life has MAJORLY changed from when the adults were teens. Its nothing like it use to be. And this is coming from a teen who has been through it all, stress, evil teachers, annoying parents, depression, bullying, a crap load of homework, evil coaches, peer pressure AND MORE!! I think teachers, parents, concelors, coaches, etc...should all read this so they know exactly what us teen have to go through everyday of our life!! Let's face it, TEEN YEARS SUCK!!!!
