“The disease came with a vengeance and shocked his system totally. It took eight weeks from diagnosis; in a flash he was gone.”
Where do you even start when the one person who has been there for you throughout your young life is taken away from you before your eyes? For teenager Kaela Stubenvoll, cancer claimed her beloved father. For you it may be the loss of a sibling, a cherished pet, or a close friend. Grief doesn’t discriminate. What does matter is the path you choose and the journey you take from the darkest place to your future, brighter self.
Written by Kaela for other teenagers—or anyone grieving a great loss—this book contains anecdotes, advice, and personal poems as she reveals her grief, truth discovered, lessons learned, and how she ultimately triumphs. “Reality has been a lot harder than any dream, and through this twisted humor that became my life, this journey is perfectly imperfect.”
