Check out the Author Interview with Suzanne LaFleur!
Eleven-year-old Aubrey’s life has been turned upside-down over the past few months. First her family is part of a tragic accident that changes everything. Then, her mother leaves her alone to fend for herself and never tells her where she is going or when she will be back. Aubrey knows she can take care of herself until her mother returns, even though she is scared. When Aubrey doesn’t answer the phone for a few days her grandmother shows up at her door. Her grandmother does the only thing she can; she uproots Aubrey from her home in Virginia and brings her up to her house in Vermont. Trying to deal with being abandoned, along with the other losses that she has experienced, Aubrey begins writing letters to sort out her feelings. Over the course of the summer, a friendship begins to blossom with the next door neighbor, Bridget, although there are certainly some ups and downs. Will Aubrey’s mother come back for her? What is the tragedy that has rocked her world? Will Aubrey ever be able to move on? Read this touching book about friendship, loss, and hope to find out!
Love, Aubrey by Suzanne LaFleur is a book like none other! I read it in a day because I had to find out what happened. Aubrey is a girl that I can imagine being friends with because she has feelings that I can relate to, even though we have different lives. I think the book would be helpful for anyone that has experienced a major loss because they would be able to relate to Aubrey and might learn from her about healing. It is also an excellent book for people to read who have friends that have gone through something big that they aren’t sure how to help them with because they don’t know what to say. I would recommend this book to anyone in 4th grade and up that is ready for an emotional story with characters that will really make them think. Be prepared to cry!
