Grief is a tough topic.  Unfortunately, losing someone or something is a fact we will all deal with at some point in life.  Tweens and teens may need help expressing their grief, coping with grief or may even wonder if their grief is “normal”.  Finding someone you can relate to in a book can be helpful in navigating rough waters.  These are chapter books geared towards tween and teen aged youth with a theme of experiencing and dealing with grief.
