About the Author:

Rabbi Earl A. Grollman is an internationally recognized bereavement counselor who has been named Hero of the Heartland and given the Distinguished Human Service Award from Yeshiva University, among countless other awards. He is author of the best-selling Living When a Loved One Has Died (Beacon / 2719-7 / $10.00 pb), among many other books, and articles about him and his work have appeared in USA Today, Harper's, Reader's Digest, Ann Landers, People, and in virtually every major American daily. He lives in Belmont, Massachusetts.

From Kirkus Reviews:

An insightful theologian/grief expert (``the cure for grief is to grieve'') opens with Terry Kettering's attention-grabbing poem, ``The Elephant in the Room.'' Teens' grief--like, Grollman suggests, the huge (but unobserved) elephant--is often overlooked or minimized. Addressing this gap, he presents just a few on- target, incisive lines on each page--to be read, like poetry, with deliberation--on topics such as ``the first days after a death'' and ``facing your future.'' The occasional humor is not inappropriate (``Why is there a special relationship between grandparents and grandchildren? They have a common enemy--the parent''); but the treatment of special relationships and circumstances suffers from Grollman's brevity. He acknowledges that it's normal to feel that one's own grief is the worst; some teens will be disappointed not to find their particular situation treated more fully. Still, all are likely to find consolation in the book as a whole, and in completing (in the concluding workbook pages) statements like ``The last thing I did with you was...'' and ``What scares me the most is...''
