Chicken Soup for the Soul: Just for Preteens

My story “Feeding the Soul” will appear in the Chicken Soup for the Soul: Just for Preteens book set for release on July 26, 2011.

This anthology is a collection of 101 stories of inspiration and support for Tweens. Being a preteen can be difficult for the child, parent and anyone else living with them. School is more challenging, bodies are changing, relationships with parents are different, and new issues arise with friends.

But preteens (as well as family and friends) can find encouragement and inspiration in this collection of stories about the problems and issues they face every day. Chicken Soup for the Soul: Just for Preteens will help readers as they navigate those tough preteen years from ages 9 to 12 with its stories from others just like them, about the highs and lows of life as a preteen. It's a support group they can carry in their backpack!

Only three days left to vote for your favorite genre (sidebar to the right). Happy Writing!

Hi, Sylvia, I came over to check you out, and I'm now a follower.

Too bad they didn't have such things when I was a preteen. That was a very difficult time for me, as my mother passed away before I turned 12. But that was soooo long ago.

I'm sure this will do really well.

Best of luck with this Sylvia. I have one pre and one in his teens. It was a tricky time for me too.
