Abstract:

Annie Richards knows there are a million things to look out for - bicycle accidents, chicken pox, runaway zoo animals. That's why being careful is so important, even if it does mean giving up some of her favourite things, like bike races with her best friend and hot dogs on the Fourth of July. Everyone keeps telling Annie not to worry so much, that she's just fine. But they thought her brother, Jared, was just fine too, and Jared died. It takes a new neighbour to make Annie realise that her plans for being careful aren't working out as well as she'd hoped. And with a lot of help from those around her, Annie just may find a way to close her umbrella of sadness and step back into the sunshine.

A book dealing with grief

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-12-02) Fair Permalink

Definitely a book dealing with grief. Too many incidents to my liking. The main character Annie in addition worries about herself and possible accidents and illnesses.
