The death of a friend is a wrenching event for anyone at any age. Teenagers especially need help coping with this painful loss. This sensitive book answers questions grieving teens often have, like "How should I be acting?" "Is it wrong to go to parties and have fun?" "What is 'normal'?" and "What if I can't handle my grief on my own?"
The advice is gentle, non-preachy, and genuinely compassionate; the author has seen her own children suffer from the death of a friend, and she knows what teenagers go through when another teen dies. The revised edition includes new quotes from teens, new resources, and a new section on losing a friend through violence. Also recommended for parents and teachers of teens who have experienced a painful loss. Black & white photos, 5" x 7", ages 11 & up.
