Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-A book that is written in clear, user-friendly prose. Each page presents a different idea designed to help teens recognize mourning as a natural process connected with loss, reassuring them that they should not be afraid of deep, sometimes uncontrollable emotions, and showing them how to release grief in healthy, positive ways. Several suggestions appear under each heading; many of them encourage readers to express their feelings in a journal. The book has a comfortable tone to it, without taking away from the very definite need to deal with grief. It seems to work with, rather than talk at teens as they tackle the problem/solution process. A good first step toward admitting the need for and getting help.

From Booklist

Gr. 6-12. When teenagers lose loved ones, they often feel confusion as well as heartache. Wolfelt, whose decades of experience in grief work with teens informs his ideas, offers 100 ways to facilitate grieving and come to terms with loss. Although the instinctual desire may be to push intense feelings away, Wolfelt encourages teens to attend the funeral, visit the gravesite, and even to seek out smells that call the loved one to mind. He also counsels teens to avoid "techno-escape," using television and the Web to keep from feeling the pain. For periodic perusal more than a straight read-through, this book offers practical and constructive tasks that will bring teens into contact with their feelings. A unique approach to an important subject, this will be a good companion to Earl Grollman's Straight Talk about Death for Teenagers (1993). John Green

This book is wonderful. My son passed away at the age of 24 and my 15 year old daughter was finding it hard to find her way through this difficult grieving process. The book touched upon so many important and pertinent facts such as your grief is unique, just like your relationship to the person you lost is unique. Whether it's the loss of a sibling, parent, grandparent or other person in a teen's life, I think this book really addresses many of the issues that teens are concerned with when dealing with a loss in their lives.

Wolfelt has written this book in an easy-read format, making it not only easy to pick up and thumb through, but the bulletted pages make it easier for teens to read. As a School Social Work intern, the activities listed on the bottom of each page are excellent sources of ideas for use with students with whom I work.

This book is very good for dealing with grief. I lost my wife at 54 after a 15 month battle with cancer about 4 months ago. I had heard the author as as a speaker previously. I bought this book for my adult children (29 & 26) after the loss of their mother. I bought the companion book (for Spouses)for myself. When I lost my bother (at 61)a little over a month ago I bought this book for his adult child (who was really struggling as they had not had a good relationship for a long while) and the companion book for his spouse. They have all said it was very helpful.
His various books on 100 ways to Heal Your Grieving Heart are really thought provoking and helpful. They are short and easy to work to read and put to practice. I plan to buy more as time goes on to help others in need. Losing a love one is very difficult and this book helps to work through the challenging process of morning and grief, male or female.

A nice, easy to read guide to the grief process and includes many straightforward things to do to help process and work through grief. The set up of the book (as you can see from the preview) is a one page brief overview of a topic related to grief, and at the bottom of the page there is a strategy, such as a prompt for journal writing, a quote to reflect on, an activity to do, or urging the reader to reach out to a trusted friend to talk. It is a simple book and not bogged down with complicated language or unrealistic tips for coping with grief. It almost seemed like common sense ideas organized in brief little bits (1 page topics) that would be great for someone coping with grief; it was freeing to be able to read one page or a few pages based on how I felt, rather than the feeling I got from other books where I felt overwhelmed into reading a full chapter. This book is not all that deep, though, and would be really good in conjunction with talking with a therapist or group counseling to maximize benefit.

I stumbled on to Alan Wolfelt's books while browsing around at my local bookstore. His books on grieving really hit the spot and offer wonderful suggestions for teens, children and adults. There are books for caregivers and for those grieving as well.
