Description

With many jurisdictions considering whether or not to implement new assisted-death legislation, Choosing to Live, Choosing to Die is a timely look at the subject for teen readers who may not yet have had much experience with death and dying.

Readers are introduced to the topic of assisted dying through the author's own story. The issue continues to be hotly debated in families, communities and countries around the world, and there are no easy answers. Choosing to Live, Choosing to Die looks at the issue from multiple perspectives and encourages readers to listen with an open mind and a kind heart and reach their own conclusions.

Editorial Reviews

“[An] accessible guide that respects the ability of teen readers to understand the nuances surrounding a complex topic. A thought-provoking, easy-to-understand resource.”

— Kirkus Reviews

? “Tate’s sprawling work is a fascinating guide that belongs in all middle school, high school, and public libraries. This resource will help tweens and teens looking to better understand death and dying for personal or academic purposes.”

— School Library Journal

“For readers who want a balanced, thoughtful dive into a difficult issue, this has a lot to offer."

— Booklist

“A difficult, important topic, and Tate handles it gracefully. Choosing to Live, Choosing to Die may be controversial reading in some communities, but teens (and adults) need opportunities for the critical thinking and personal reflection that the book requires.”

— Resource Links

“[Tate] presents these complex questions in very accessible prose...Definitely a book that has a place in Grade 9-12 library collections...Tate doesn’t pretend to have all the answers, and she does an excellent job of posing many questions for consideration.”

— CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“An important work that fills a void, Choosing to Live, Choosing to Die honestly addresses one of the hardest realities of growing up.”

— Quill & Quire
