Grade 7 Up A comforting and reassuring book that grew out of Strauss' volunteer work with teenage children of cancer patients. Using the experiences of these teens, Strauss discusses the reactions of family members, suggesting methods for finding out what is happening. She emphasizes the unique problems of teens and helps them to deal with the need to live their own lives, encouraging them to find someone to talk to. She explains the disease and treatments, what to expect in the hospital, and the process of grieving and death in a sympathetic, easy-to-read style. There is a comprehensive bibliography and index. This book is for an older audience than Eda LeShan's When a Parent Is Very Sick (Little, 1986) and supplements Jill Krementz' How It Feels When a Parent Dies (Knopf, 1988).
