I liked the simplicity of this book. It can helped students to understand their own feelings by reading about other people their own age and how they managed grief, sorrow, guilt and being able to move on. The book is easy to read and understand plus it gives some basic ways to remind yourself that you need to be kind to yourself and take care of your needs. This book is good for Middle School and even High School.

I think this book is great for children who are too young to understand death. It is also a very sensitive book for grieving teens. There are many helpful strategies to help grieving teens who may not know what they are going through better understand what they can do to help themselves or fellow friends or family who are also grieving. This book was very good and helped me understand some ways people grieve that I never knew about. Some ways people deal with death that I would have never thought was because they were grieving.
