Allenbaugh, Kay. Chocolate for a teen's dream; heartwarming stories about making your wishes come true.

Simon & Schuster, Fireside. 203p. c2003. 0-7432-3703-X. $12.00. JS

The most important aspect of this collection is that the stories are true. They resonate with courage, humor and positive energy. The author wants to encourage teens to dream, to fulfill those dreams, and most importantly not to be discouraged by failure. There are 50 stories here that reveal disappointments, honesty, and even a really gross situation in a college dorm There are unhappy endings but truth in every one of them. The collection illuminates life so you can ruminate about its sweetness and richness (hence the "chocolate" in the title). Sherri Forgash Ginsberg, Chapel Hill, NC
