"When teens are struggling and hanging on by a thin thread, these stories can help reveal the light at the end of the tumultuous tunnel of growing up.”
New Haven, CT (PRWEB) February 1, 2011
Kiwi Publishing is proud to announce the publication of “Thin Threads: Teens & Young Adults,” the series’ first edition compiled specifically for teenagers. The book will join the Thin Threads line of two anthologies, six special editions, and customized online books.
Motivational stories of love, loss, passions, obstacles, and accomplishments fill this book with heartwarming and inspiring occurrences that are easily relatable to teens. Whether detailing a painful breakup or describing the steps to overcoming depression, the life-changing moments in “Thin Threads: Teens & Young Adults” demonstrate what creator Stacey K. Battat call the “‘a ha’ instances of life.”
“There is no period that better represents the fragility of our lives than young adulthood,” Battat said. “When teens are struggling and hanging on by a thin thread, these stories can help reveal the light at the end of the tumultuous tunnel of growing up.”
Emphasizing the importance of connecting with each other and seizing opportunities, the Thin Threads stories for teens and young adults deliver hope and optimism during a period of turbulence and confusion. The new edition also provides teens with the ability to submit their motivational stories online through the website http://www.thinthreads.com. Submissions for “Teens & Young Adults” will be accepted through May 31, 2011.
During the month of February, teens are encouraged to participate in the “Share a Story, Share a Dinner” contest. Individuals who submit their personal Thin Threads love story for the young adulthood edition will automatically be entered in a raffle to win a $50 giftcard to Chilis. Stories must be submitted online (http://www.thinthreads.com/submit.php) by February 28 to qualify.
Aimed at harnessing teens’ attention and generating their interest, Battat and her co-editor plan to utilize popular social networking sites. Teens can learn more about the book by ‘liking’ the “Thin Threads for Teens and Young Adults” page on Facebook and following @ThinThreadsTeen on Twitter.
