Book Review: Love, Aubrey by Suzanne Lafleur

Title: Love, Aubrey
Author: Suzanne LaFleur
Published by: Wendy Lamb Books (2009)

My Rating: ✭✭✭✭✭

Oh my goodness. Love, Aubrey is the best, most amazing, saddest book ever written. And I mean it. You will never regret reading it! The writing is so capitivating; you feel both Aubrey’s happiness and sadness. You feel so bad for her, and you can’t stop reading until the last page, when you find out the outcome. It will keep you thinking long after the last page and I’d say the only thing wrong is you’ll go crazy wanting a sequel so you can hear more of Aubrey’s future life! 

Plot: The story is about eleven-year-old Aubrey. Her dad and little sister, Savannah, have just died in a car accident, and her mom, crazed with grief, abandoned her. Left alone in her house, Aubrey lives alone for a week—until Gram comes to take her home to Vermont. 
At home, Aubrey’s friends had abandoned her, she was living by herself with nobody to watch her, and she hated school. Here in Vermont, she goes to a nice school, lives with her caring grandmother, and has a new best friend, Bridget. But the emptiness from the loss of her family is still there. They’ve been searching for her mom for a long time with no clues. Why would her mom just….leave?

Wow—it is just a beautiful book. It takes true talent to write a book so good it makes you want to cry. Read it! You will never regret it, and you will never forget Aubrey’s story. Reading her memories, you start to miss Savannah, too, even though you never knew her. 

Love, Aubrey definitely deserves five stars. It’s the most amazing book you’ll ever read.
