What is a synonym for "sad"?
Hello! My middle child described a character in his book as "sad," but then paused, saying he wished he could find a better word. Can you give synonyms to enrich his vocabulary.

You can use 'miserable' (i.e. 'The poor boy looked miserable after loosing his ball'), 'despondent' (i.e. 'The football team were despondent after they have lost.') or even 'depressed' (i.e. 'He felt depressed after saying goodbye.')

Hope this helps!
