Young Widows Club by Alexandra Coutts is a heart-wrenching story about love, loss and finding yourself again after losing the person who meant everything.

For seventeen-year-old Tam, running off to marry her musician boyfriend is the ideal escape from her claustrophobic high school life on the island, and the ultimate rebellion against her father and stepmother. But when Tam becomes a widow just weeks later, the shell-shocked teen is forced to find her way forward by going back to the life she thought she'd moved beyond even as her struggle to deal with her grief is forcing her to reinvent herself and reach out to others in ways she never imagined.

Tam s narrative voice will draw readers in to what real grief looks like, and Colin s deadpan humor keeps a serious story from being dragged too deep. Layered with rounded secondary characters and running its own haunting soundtrack, Coutts s novel explores family, grief, and second chances with delicacy and resonance. "Booklist"

Coutts handles the engaging, emotional subject with a sure touch. As Tamsen and Colin make mistakes of the heart, readers should find it easy to sympathize with the ways they stumble toward healing. "Publishers Weekly"

This intense and emotionally charged novel adeptly examines the five stages of grief and how one teen handles marriage, death, and rebirth. A must-have for YA collections. "School Library Journal""
