49.Claudia and the Sad Goodbye (#26)

SCHOLASTIC

Claudia has always been very close to her grandmother Mimi. Mimi is the only person in her family that truly accepts her for who she is — an artist with bad grades and a good heart. Mimi suffers a stroke in book #7, which is hard. So when Mimi dies, Claudia is devastated. Thankfully, Claudia has her friends to lean on. Family loss is hard, but when you’re a tween, it’s hard to allow yourself to grieve. So the fact that there’s an entire book to show kids it’s okay to be sad when your family member dies is important.
