About this title


For a teen, it can be especially difficult to lose a family member or friend through death. Author Tracy A. Phillips explores the emotions involved and offers suggestions for ways that young people can get through this experience.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6–10—Phillips explores the grieving process and reflects on the loss of parents, a sibling, relatives, friends, and pets. In general, the book does not speak directly to young adults who are grieving, but rather to those interested in reading about how people, particularly teens, experience the process. Quotes, including some by adults who experienced loss in their youth, are interspersed throughout the book. The final chapters are most helpful, detailing typical responses and reactions to grief as well as how to find support and to be supportive. Unfortunately, Phillips's recommended resources are spare and outdated. The contact information of the nine organizations listed (Survivors of Suicide, Teen Age Grief, Inc., and others) includes mailing addresses and phone numbers—no Web addresses. The list of Internet resources is bare bones (four listings). Bold subheads, interior color photos, and pull quotes break up the text. This would not be the book to hand to a young person dealing with grief. While there are nuggets of important information, they are overshadowed by the volume's impersonal aspects. Keep this title on the assignment shelf.—Emily Chornomaz, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
