For fans of John Green and Emily X.R. Pan, The Half-Orphan''s Handbook by Joan F. Smith is a coming-of-age story and an empathetic, authentic exploration of grief with a sharp sense of humor and a big heart.

It''s been three months since Lila lost her father to suicide. Since then, she''s learned to protect herself from pain by following two unbreakable rules:
