Love, Aubrey

(2 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Puffin

At the outset we meet 11-year-old Aubrey… living alone. Aubrey is the survivor of a car crash that has killed her sister and father – and now her mother has abandoned her. Strong stuff.

Aubrey moves to a new home with her Grandmother, starts a new school and makes good friends. But, unable to talk about her experience, she writes letters instead. We watch, from Aubrey’s perspective, as she goes through stages of bereavement and tries to come to terms with her relationship with her mother.
