This latest entry in the Chicken Soup series is targeted at the newly brokenhearted: those who've recently experienced the death of a beloved friend or family member and are still reeling from the experience. It's a collection of stories by authors who have lost loved ones, and in their stories, they detail the particular death, the aftermath, and how they dealt with their overwhelming grief and found the courage to live again. This collection is very sad, bordering on the maudlin, and while it's not clear whether the stories will make anyone feel better (they may actually cause mild depression), some readers may find comfort here. Divided into chapters with titles such as "Final Gifts," "The Power of Support," and "Living Again," the stories emphasize the universality and commonness of death, which may be something of a panacea. In any case, this series is hugely popular, and librarians should stock up. Kathleen Hughes
