The Book of Tomorrow...



My thoughts:  First off I want to say, I'm getting me one of these books.  I think actually the book was not such a huge part of the story. Tamara is certainly struggling. and I for one have never really considered how a young person would grieve.  It only just occurred to me through Tamara that perhaps my kids will have difficulty when one of their grandparents passes.  I don't know how one helps young people, they are too often not open to help.  I enjoy this book in spite of the "grief" I love the twists and turns, and I loved the historical descriptions of the surrounding "castle" and I particularly loved that Tamara appreciated it.  A good read.  Thank You to the blogger who recommended this one.

This sounds really good! I do think young people are open to help, but we don't always know what to do to help them.

Irene.....this book sounds like good read for me. I was looking around for something. I'll hit the library first and if not I guess Chapter's.

Thanks for stopping by I haven't heard form you in a long time. :-)

I remember you mentioning this in a comment. It seems odd that the book would not play such a big role though. Glad you enjoyed it.

I like what you said about it helping to open up a dialog with kids about death and loss - I remember from personal experience that it was something I found embarrassing to talk about when I was a teen.
