I found this book to reflect how a teen might accurately react to the sudden passing of a sibling (particularly a beloved one). The book started out quite emotional and sad, but watching the progression of the main character through her grieving process while at grief camp was very inspiring. I'd recommend this for any youth who've lost someone to suicide or otherwise.

Just a Normal Tuesday by Kim Turrisi shared a story of a young girl named Kai who discovered suicide letters from her sister Jen. The impact of this decision affected Kai deeply. She was angry, sad and confused about why Jen did it. As the story progresses, Kai’s parents offered her to a camp for grief kids. Later on, she finds warmth, hope and even happiness at grief camp. I adore how the author expresses emotions of losing someone dearly to you. The pain was hard enough, adding on the ways the parents handle things. Everyone wants more time to be with someone they loved. A lot of foreshadowing happened in this book. Such as main events of the death, the torment of grief and finally revealing happiness. I highly recommend this book because of how they show the tone of this book, well written from this deep topic and it connects all of us who may have the same or similar experience we all can relate.
