You are Not Alone

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Brooke’s Place now has its very own book! 

You Are Not Alone: Stories by Young Teens Who Have Experienced the Death of a Sibling is a collection of true stories told by grieving young teens. Each author in this book writes with authenticity as they honor their deceased sibling. You Are Not Alone is meant to provide support to other young readers who may be grieving the death of someone they loved. John Green, the New York Times best-selling author of The Fault in Our Stars and Turtles All the Way Down, has written the foreword to You Are Not Alone. John writes, “Warning: this book will probably make you cry. This book will also make you smile as you read about the ways people honor their lost loved ones, and the warm memories they carry on with them.” Grieving the death of loved ones is difficult, and everyone processes grief differently. The teen authors who have contributed to this book transparently share their grief journeys and how the support of programs such as Brooke’s Place has helped transform their grief into hope.

"Thank you for all of your help thus far.  (Child) really enjoyed his time there.  He got in the car and the first words were, “Did you know that every kid in my group had their dad die?”  To most that would seem like a horrible thing to say but in our car it was music to our ears.  He was comforted to know that he was not the only kid living this ride on the crazy train… We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Brooke’s Place… Thank you again for everything.  (Child) loved the folks working his group!"
