Dark Times free pdf This title is intended for ages 12 . The result of a cross-Canada contest for the best short stories about young people's experience of loss and grief, "Dark Times" is a superb anthology about a topic that often remains hidden but is crucial in the development of a child's sense of identity. The stories explore highly contemporary situations: a First Nations boy mourns the death of his mother- a girl copes with the loss of her grandmother to Alzheimer's disease- a boyfriend's death takes a girl through the five stages of grief- a destitute family loses their home- a daughter loses a parent when her mother leaves- a foetal alcohol syndrome child is lost to his family when he is sent to prison- a boy loses the brother he loves to mental illness- the death of a small child challenges a girl's belief in God- and a young girl discovers her father in an affair and confronts him - with devastating results.
