This is not an easy read. Grief Girl is the true story of Erin Vincent, a 14-year-old Australian girl whose parents are hit by a speeding tow truck and die. Her grief, and that of her older sister, is unbearable and they both struggle for years to find themselves, and each other, in the midst of this unbelievable sadness. Erin's sister takes her grief out on Erin and, as a result, Erin struggles with feelings of unworthiness and depression. Erin believes the accident is her fault because in acting class, she has a daydream that her parents are dead. Erin's story was very difficult for me to read, and I found myself having to put the book down and take a break. I think this is a good book for teenage girls who are struggling with self-esteem and self-worth.
