Coping with the Death of a Brother or SisterBy Ruth Ann Ruiz
The Rosen Publishing Group, Inc., 2001, 121 pages
ISBN: 0823928519

This book speaks both to teens and for teens. It presents information and comfort in easy-to-read terms and language that will resonate to teen readers. It is a hard loss to face the death of a brother or sister. For the survivor, everything has changed, the world of family and place may feel shaky and foreign. Coping with the Death of a Brother or Sister does not candy coat the challenges of this great loss, but it does make clear inroads into normalizing the grief experience as it may be felt by siblings and parents. This comprehensive book also provides insight into reactions that can occur when sudden death occurs and talks about the impact a sibling's death can have even if the death occurred when the teen was young.
