An amazing resource for teens, young adults, and really anyone dealing with grief. I love the specific quotes, concrete suggestions, and extensive resource list.

It carries an incredibly significant message to teens living with grief. I will be proud to share this book and recommend it to others.
Rather than offering advice or prescriptions, Grief shares insights and perspective for teens experiencing the death of a loved one. The pages contain timeless wisdom from writers and poets, from movies and stories, paired with the words of six teens who’ve walked their own paths of grief. This book can help grieving teens find their way on a journey toward meaning.
Empowering. Teens are encouraged to take ownership of their grief and embark upon their own “hero’s journey.” Insightful array of life examples, from contemporary TV shows to ancient Greek history.
