Death and Dying Non-fiction

Few of us are ever prepared for the loss of a loved one. Young people grappling with grief for the first time are often confused and frightened. This guidebook helps the reader understand and cope with loss. The author, who is also a practicing psychologist, suggests a simple yet effective action plan for seeking support from others, keeping good memories alive, and beginning to heal. Based on her work with bereaved young people, Dr. Peacock offers true life stories about real teenagers who have experienced loss and begun to heal.
