By Marilyn E. Gootman. Help teenagers cope with the death of a friend, a classmate, or an acquaintance through the genuine understanding, gentle advice, and compassionate wisdom of this book. Among the many questions addressed are "How can I stand the pain?" "How should I be acting?" and "How long will this last?" The book also touches upon situations where the deceased is an acquaintance rather than a close friend and when someone dies through violence or suicide. Other issues mentioned are what to do if friends start acting differently, how to tell if a counselor or therapist might help, and what constitutes "normal." Includes thoughtful quotes about death and dying along with reflections shared by other teens who have lost friends. Grades 6–12. Index. Resources. Illustrated. Free Spirit. 126 pages. Third Edition. ©2019.
