Chocolate for a Teen's Dreams takes a spirited look at the importance of following your heart. These true stories, by contemporary teens and women with insightful recollections, capture the hope and promise of adolescence and the plans every young woman treasures amid academic demands, social obligations, and family pressures. The Chocolate storytellers reveal how desire and determination can turn vision into reality -- and offer sage advice on what to do when things don't turn out exactly according to plan. Chocolate for a Teen's Dreams presents a broad spectrum of wishes and frustrations -- from waiting for that special guy to invite you to the prom to figuring out how to get into your first-choice college. Readers will discover their own ambitions and expectations, as well as their fears. They'll meet teens who overcame the odds to achieve their goals and women who learned from disappointment, laughed at their failures, and forged lives that are as rich and sweet as chocolate.
