Death & Bereavement Week

Death and Bereavement Week

Teenagers feel invincible; they have thier whole lives ahead of them and - though they may not admit it - they have their parents to "protect" them. What could possibly go wrong?

But sometimes things do go wrong. They can lose a loved one, or find out that they themselves, may die. Suddenly, they're eyes open and they realise they're not so invincible, that there are some things parents just can't fix, and their whole world crumbles.

Death and Bereavement in Teen Lit Week looks into how authors deal with such an earth-shattering topic, of these horrendous eye-opening experiences. Unfortunately, due to computer issues, I could only hold a week long event rather than a full month.
