“The motto I live by? Impossible is nothing,” writes contributor Scott aloney in his story “Impossible is Nothing,”which shares how a night of partying changed his life. When a fateful fall from a tree landed him in the hospital,
Scott’s parents were informed that he was legally brain dead. Refusing to accept the doctor’s assessment, the Maloneys fought for their son. After 23 days in a coma, Scott woke up and spent another four months in the hospital learning how to walk, talk and breathe on his own again. Within two years of the accident, Scott went from using a wheelchair to participating in the Boston Marathon for a fourth and final time, triumphantly leaving his running days behind.“In less than three short years I have gone from being a marathon runner, to a label six on the coma scale (which is the point at which the hospital calls the coroner) to a college graduate, to a motivational speaker whose aim is to educate students about the consequences of the decisions that anyone can make under the influence of alcohol,” says Maloney. With candid stories like Maloney’s, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Campus Chronicles is divided into sections ranging from “Campus Antics” to “Difficulties and Obstacles,” offering stories on first loves, acclimating to college life, resolving roommate squabbles and surviving that dreaded class. Brimming with wisdom for students and parents, the book is
an excellent conversation-starter for parents to talk to their teen about being away from home, providing them with an opportunity to share stories from their college days. Inside Chicken Soup for the Soul: Campus Chronicles, you’ll also read about:
• One student’s struggle with the hardest decision: “What’s my major?”
• Studying abroad in Venice, Chile and Scotland
• Finding closure in a college romance gone bad
• An unusual spring break trip spent serving others in need
• Dealing with a problematic roommate’s unwanted guests
I am addicted to the Twilight Series right now and do not have time to read. I know, and here I am supporting another book. I do believe that children learn by example and I want to encourage reading to everyone.
Chicken Soup for the Soul is constantly putting out books. This is one of the newest in an already loved collection of books.
