Out of the BlueEvery year, thousands of young people face life after someone important to them has died. Created by Winston’s Wish, Out of the Blue is a collection of tried and tested ideas to help young people remember the person who died and help them express their thoughts and feelings about that event.

This book was written and designed specifically for teenagers. Its aim is to help support them through the bereavement process using a range of activities. This is a companion volume to the popular Muddles, Puddles, and Sunshine, the activity book for bereaved children.

By adding photos, drawings, and words, the workbook will become a lasting personal record of a loved one. Each activity features the words and stories of those who have experienced bereavement, reinforcing the message that “I’m not alone.” Out of the Blue can be completed by a teenager alone, with the help of a family member, or with the appropriate professional.
