Experiencing loss as a teenager or young person can be extremely isolating. Madeleine Davies experienced this herself at the age of twelve years old when her mother died. Over 20 years later, she can still remember the loneliness that surrounded her, which is what prompted her to write this book, Lights for the Path: A Guide Through Grief, Pain and Loss.

Bringing together stories of loss, advice from doctors, counsellors, authors, as well as Madeleine's own experience, this book offers practical tips and incredible comfort to young readers everywhere. Those working with young people will also find this book to be a valuable resource for helping to support teenagers who have experienced a death of a relative or friend.

After reading Lights for the Path, readers will find comfort in knowing that they are not alone and they will find their way.
