I can't promise they're good, but I found a few more titles in this Slate article: https://slate.com/human-interest/2018/07/childrens-books-about-suicide-and-severe-depression-are-too-rare.html

Hello hive mind,

I had a question from a patron who is trying to find more YA fiction about a teen who is coping in the aftermath of the suicide of  a parent.
I was able to come up with two titles - The Astonishing Color of After by Emily Pan and Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers. Does anyone have other good ones?
