When loss or illness strikes a family, young people don't always have the experience to help them cope. These seven new titles can help them find the strength and the resources to help them get through even the toughest situation.

Physicians, educators, parents, and students are still working to fully understand dyslexia, which refers to a range of problems that interfere with an individual's ability to read and to use and understand language. Help teens learn why dyslexia no longer has to mean a lifetime of educational challenges and intellectual frustration.
