Re-writing sad endings to be positive in kids books

Steve was watching a programme on the telly a little while ago, when the main person in the programme was talking about his weight.

That, in itself, didn't turn the lightbulb on for me, but my brain has been mulling it over ever since.

He said about changing the endings of books to be more positive instead of sad.  That's what I always try and write for kids below MG anyway and usually my MG and YA MS' have a positive ending too, but it really got my brain working!

I'm not after stealing the work of author's books that are already published... not only is it illegal but I'd give myself oneheckuva guilt trip about doing it!  I just want to read how authors handle their sad endings is all, sooo could you send me the Amazon UK links to books you've read for kids up to 17 years old that have sad endings.

If it makes me cry, so much the better!  lol

I will, of course, give each book a read and review both on my blog and, of course, on Amazon.  If it's available on the Kindle then so much the better too and Audible too!  Basically, saving the trees but still reading new-to-me novels is what I want.

Can you help me?  Please?  😃
