I was only ten when my grandpa died. He was like my dad, since i didnt get to see my dad that often and mother and i lived with my grandparents. My step-mom got me this book when i was fifteen i think, too little too late in my opinion! But any who, i read it and i DID find it a little conforting and also readingbthe Bible helped me to cope with my depresstion anaccet his death. This is also a great way of explaining how death happens and its nobodies fault. I highly recommend this bookto teens.
