Death Sucks Life Doesn’t Have To by Brea Behn

Did a book swap with the author of this book (one of hers for one of mine). This is my honest review.Death Sucks, Life Doesn't Have To

Stats: Published in 2015, 86 pages.

Blurb: (Goodreads) Grief is a normal reaction to the loss of a loved one. However, when not handled properly, grief can lead to depression and poor health. Death Sucks, Life Doesn’t Have To is the inspirational story of how author and speaker Brea Behn lost her twin at the age of fifteen to an accident with a handgun. The loss of her twin spiraled her into depression and resulted in serious health problems.

In her fifteen year journey she has healed to find peace, joy, and happiness. Brea will share with you how she accomplished this and some great tips and suggestions on how others can too. Also included is a great resources chapter full of suggested books, lists, and websites to help readers personalize their journey of healing.

What I liked: The author doesn’t skirt around the issues she faced and still faces. She is honest about how she dealt with things, which leads more weight to how she made her way out of the situations that faced her. It’s a very honest account of dealing with very difficult and even life threatening issues. The resources in the back of the book are very good and divided up for easier access. Behan admits it’s not an all-encompassing list, but it’s a good start for anyone trying to help themselves or others in similar situations. I think her advice is sound.

What I didn’t like: Not much. As a book editor, there were some editing things that could be addressed but that doesn’t dampen the overall positive appeal.
