Overview

You've got to pick up this book! It was written by a grieving teen for grieving teens. Like you, author Jenny Lee Wheeler has experienced (and is still experiencing) the challenges of how to grieve in an adult world filled with "shoulds" and unrealistic expectations.

You're not alone. Jenny shares her personal grief journey and reassures you that:

You have the right to grieve in YOUR OWN way and on YOUR OWN timetable.

Grieving teens sometimes get lost in the shuffle because most adults don't understand how teenagers moum.

Your grief attacks might be totally different from those of the adults around you. That's okay. In fact, it's normal. You're a teenager!

You aren't crazy or imagining things if you see signs from your loved one. Signs don't have to be huge or obvious to everyone; they just have to be special to you, reassuring you that love never dies.
