Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very well written book to help teenagers deal with grief and loss. It is split into sections which are cross-referenced in the text and easy to find from the contents page. So can be dipped into as well as being read all the way through. It is clear that the counsellor who wrote it has a lot of experience of listening to and helping grieving teenagers. Uses examples of real teenagers to illustrate points and of death of own husband and the effect on her own teenage children. Covers coping with living limiting illness in the family and sudden and violent death, funerals, memorials and coping after death

I would particularly recommend it to teenagers but also for those who want to help teenagers grieve. Be aware that it is an American book so culturally different to Britain. This does not detract from its worth

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Healing Power 6 Nov. 2000
By Erin J. Benedetto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Although I bought this book for my niece who is 14, after my sister was killed in a car accident, I found the book useful for anyone mourning the death of a loved one. The book was written in a clear and concise manner. It has a table of contents that can lead you directly to the topic you want to learn more about. In our case we went to the sections that spoke about "when death comes sudden" and "no time to say good-bye". The author also writes about practical matters like what to expect at the wake and the funeral. There are even sections that some people might think taboo, like what does a dead person look or feel like. All these things helped us to come out of the shock of it all. There are two other book in the series: The Mourning Book (which I have read and is equally wonderful) and The Greiving Child (which I have not had a chance to purchase - but I will - I have another niece who is 4yrs old). Helen Fitzgerald should be congratulated in the work she is doing to heal so many she will never meet.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book for Teens 3 Nov. 2001
By Jami - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I lost my Mom when I was 16, so when I was asked for some recommended books for teens who lost their parents in the Sept 11, 2001 terrorism attacks, this was one of them. It is a good book for any grieving teen. We sent about 30 copies of this book to New York City and Washington DC (along with other books as well). Helen Fitzgerald does a wonderful job explaining grief and the healing process to teens. I would suggest supplementing the book with some sort of journal like the book "Fire in My Heart, Ice in Veins" .. But this one is definitely worth purchasing for any grieving teen. It covers the full spectrum of grief's emotions - anger, fear, exhaustion, shock, disbelief and more. It also covers the funeral and what to expect, reacting to your emotions, and how to go on living your life.

By Lovemy Kids - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Helen Fitzgerald has all the experience needed to be an excellent source of what is "normal" for a teen who is grieving. There is so little out there to help a grieving teen but this book is a huge help. My daughter lost a friend 4 years ago when she was 12 and still struggles with the grieving process. I bought this book to help her but I read it first. The book is for a teen who has lost anyone close to them-friend, parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt or uncle. This book was recommended to me by someone at Highmark Caring Place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very direct, very applicable 18 Oct. 2013
By David P. Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very detailed table of contents makes a statement and "What You Can Do" as an empowering response through the sequence of topics. Users can jump ahead or move back as they continue in the grieving process. The emphasis on "do what is best for you" comes through. The reading level is on the upper end of the scale for teens.
