Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer TKono
"Love, Aubrey" by Suzanne LaFleur is about a girl whose little sister and father die. Traumatized by the experience, Aubrey's mother just walks out on her one day. The grandmother takes Aubrey to live with her upon discovering that Aubrey is alone. Up in Vermont, Aubrey makes friends with the girl next door and learns to cope with her life. In the end, when her mother comes to her senses, Aubrey must choose between moving back home and staying in Vermont.
This book revolves around a melancholy issue, but it does not make readers sad. Rather, it makes readers think about their own lives and just how precious life is. The plausible drama in the book makes it a page-turner. Also interesting are Aubrey's meetings with her guidance counselor and her letters she writes to her sister's imaginary friend and dead family members. This book is great for young ones, making them think beyond their years.
