Grade 7 Up?A straightforward, user-friendly approach to a difficult issue. The authors effectively utilize three fictionalized situations in which adolescents deal with death, grief, and mourning. These continuing scenarios serve as introductions to each chapter and act as guides through the bereavement process. Self-help strategies are suggested for coping with the impending loss of a loved one, and Elisabeth Kubler-Ross's stages of grief and dying are discussed. Specific concerns, such as attending a funeral and what to say, are addressed, as are the anxieties that surface with the loss of a parent. Students are encouraged to pursue professional help, not only through tips that help them recognize whether they need it or not, but also through an overview of the different kinds of assistance available. A final chapter appends a plethora of hotlines and agencies for referral and advice. A reassuring companion to Margaret Hyde's Meeting Death (Walker, 1989), Norma Gaffron's Dealing with Death (Lucent, 1989), Fred Bratman's Everything You Need to Know When a Parent Dies (Rosen, 1992), and Karen Gravelle's Teenagers Face to Face with Bereavement (Messner, 1989).?Celia A.
