11 year old Aubrey is living home a lone and has been for the past week. Ever since the morning when her mother just up and left, without even as much as a goodbye. Her Mother may have been heartbroken over the tragic loss that they had just gone through, but so is Aubrey. Aubrey is managing well and is actually, at first anyways, having fun watching TV all day and going to bed when she wants. However, soon her grandmother comes and finds that she's been living by herself and takes her back to her house. Aubrey has to learn how to cope with the loss that would tear anyone's hearts apart, young or old, and along the way she has to make and keep friends, regain a relationship with her mother if she can, and do good in school. Will Aubrey be able to do it? Or will she just give up?
"Love Aubrey" by Suzanne LaFleur is a truly delightful book. All of the characters are very well developed and it is easy to get attached to Aubrey. "Love Aubrey" is a middle grade book, however, it can be enjoyed by any and all ages. Suzanne LaFleur has mastered writing in the middle grade voice and her writing is so realistic! I look forward to reading more of Suzanne's upcoming books and suggest you to read "Love, Aubrey" right away!
