Simple but Powerful

It didn't swear a lot and had a few not described kisses. It was about a teen dealing with grief that goes to work at a funeral home where he feels less alone after his mothers death. It made me cry and was inspirational, funny, and a quick read.

This book is amazing and really makes you think about life. There is one violent scene and a LOT of language.
