Frankie didn't know it was possible for the whole world to fall apart in an instant, but when he lost someone he loved, everything he cared about seemed to crumble away. Even surrounded by friends and family, his grief leaves him feeling alone and hopeless. Grasping at all he can to feel normal again, Frankie comes to realize that grief is a long and difficult journey, but he doesn't have to make it alone.

This book showcases diversity in positive ways with characters that span various cultures, ethnicities, family situations, physical challenges and more.
