About the Author:

Diane Aggen was raised in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Since then, she’s lived in three foreign countries and has visited numerous others. Diane has been a school librarian and, most recently, an English teacher. She and her family live in Colorado.

Review:


Once upon a time, on a beautiful day in May, a young boy drowned in a small town pond. And for his sister, Diane, who was about to finish eighth grade at the time, all her joy turned to sorrow, and her colors turned to gray, as she struggled to find a “new normal” now that her old normal had died. This book is based on Diane’s journaling notes over the following four years, as she tried to find her way through an unexpected and very scary wilderness without a map or a guide to help her, because so few people really know what to say when you don’t know what to say or what to do when you don’t know what to do.

 

Out of all her pain has come the jewel of a book that is in your hand, a gift from Diane’s heart to yours. You will appreciate her candor and her refusal to accept easy answers or to offer any, whether in relation to the process of resolving the seeming irresolvable or in relation to the ultimate issues of purpose and meaning and faith in which such experiences immerse us against our will. Ultimately, you will be encouraged that at the end of journey, however long it takes, lies hope ... for those who will engage this process in truth, as Diane has done.

 

Over the past three decades, I have assembled a library of books related to grief, but not a single one is as helpful as this one for those who are making a journey similar to Diane’s (a teen having lost a sibling) and for those who would like to understand and help a brokenhearted teen more than just survive such a loss.

David B. Biebel, Author - Jonathan, You Left Too Soon; If God Is So Good Why Do I Hurt So Bad?
