Julian Stern has made an invaluable contribution to this remarkable series. The book, based on sensitive conversations with young people, identifies many situations when a young person may feel lonely - but also (most importantly) how parents, teachers and others misunderstand. Therefore, an important read not only for the young people, but also for those who care for them.

The generously illustrated narrative provides useful suggestions and needed recommendations to effectively address the issue both in school and at home. Educators and school-based counselors will find this book especially useful.
a real winner. Lots of black and white illustrations make it easily read, and it will be good for schools as well as home. Teachers and parents will note that a sad and sometimes difficult child may be experiencing loneliness.
