This book is a good example of contemporary fiction because the events in the book could happen today to students. It does a good job of depicting the emotions that kids might have after someone they know dies. It is straightforward and feels very honest which I think could be helpful to some students encountering grief. Yet I also think this book could be triggering to some who have experienced death before. Therefore, this book should probably only be read by select children. ( )
