Sweet and Spirited
Heartwarming, haunting, and often hilarious, the delicious stories in Chocolate for a Teen's Spirit touch on the things all young women face as they move into adulthood and search for spiritual grounding during times both tame and turbulent. Written by teens themselves as well as by women with good memories for those years gone by, these true-life tales range from lighthearted vignettes to poignant confessions. The Chocolate storytellers share their own moving experiences -- about setting a goal and reaching it, about being the victim of a cruel trick and rising above it, about finding love in unexpected places, and about finding the Divine in all things.
Chocolate for a Teen's Spirit will help you discover all the facets of a spirit-filled life -- ways to nurture your faith in yourself, to use your creative gifts, to find love through friends, parents, partners, and teachers, and to experience pure joy.

About the Author:

Kay Allenbaugh, creator of the Chocolate series, is a writer and speaker who is known as "The Caretaker of Stories for Women of the World." She lives in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Contributors to the Chocolate series include bestselling authors, motivational speakers, newspaper columnists, radio hosts, spiritual leaders, psychotherapists, businesswomen, and teenagers from all over the world.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up-A collection of very short stories by a wide range of female contributors. All of the selections are light; they do not deal with any controversial or gritty subjects. The entries in the "Teen Mischief" section, for example, include a tale about a girl's first experience showing her stubborn pig, another about a young woman's introduction to shaving her legs, and one about a teen convincing her mother to join her on an amusement-park ride. The authors come from diverse backgrounds, from a Broadway producer to a 13-year-old first-time writer; they are professional women, mothers, daughters, teachers, and students. The variety of voices adds an interesting texture to this confection. Will these stories warm a teen's heart and bring her hope, strength, and wisdom? Perhaps, but they offer frothy, sugary fillings instead of something rich and nourishing to sink one's teeth into. After a main course of M. Jerry Weiss and Helen Weiss's Lost & Found: Award-Winning Authors Sharing Real-Life Experiences through Fiction (Forge, 2000) or Lorrie Moore's I Know Some Things: Stories about Childhood by Contemporary Writers (Faber & Faber, 2000) or even a serving of "Chicken Soup" (Health Communications), if there is still a craving for more inspiration, a little chocolate won't hurt.
