Love, Aubrey Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
"I had everything I needed to run a household: A house, food, and a new family. From now on it would just be me and Sammy - the two of us, and no one else".
A tragic accident has turned 11-year-old Aubrey’s world upside down. Starting a new life all alone, Aubrey has everything she thinks she needs: SpaghettiOs and Sammy, her new pet fish. She cannot talk about what happened to her. Writing letters is the only thing that feels right to Aubrey, even if no one ever reads them.
With the aid of her loving grandmother and new friends, Aubrey learns that she is not alone, and gradually, she finds the words to express feelings that once seemed impossible to describe. The healing powers of friendship, love, and memory help Aubrey take her first steps toward the future.
Listeners will care for Aubrey from minute one and will watch her grow until the very end, when she has to make one of the biggest decisions of her life.
Love, Aubrey is devastating, brave, honest, funny, and hopeful, and it introduces a remarkable new writer, Suzanne LaFleur. No matter how old you are, this audiobook is not to be missed.

Eleven year old Aubrey has a hard life. Her father and sister both recently died in a car accident. Her mother became mentally ill and left Aubrey at her home in Virginia for a week. Then Aubrey's grandmother found her by herself. Aubrey's grandmother took her to live with her in Vermont, much to Aubrey's dismay. She has to go to school and learn to cope with her sadness while living life everyday. Aubrey then befriends the girl next door, Bridgett, and a boy from school, Marcus. She becomes very good friends with Bridgett, and then tells her the details of her family's car accident. With the help of friends and relatives, she soon gets better as she tries to put her family back together.
When Aubrey was telling her friend about the car crash, I was actually crying. The writing style makes you feel exactly how Aubrey feels as she goes through this awful time in her life.
I'd reccomend this book for anyone ages 11+. It's a very good book for a realistic-fiction book project. I hope the summary above helped.
Watching Aubrey's steady growth after the accident was very captivating and touching as she learns more and more. Her letters, communication with her family, communication with her friends, and visits to the counselor's office are all sources of growth for her. Watching Aubrey progress makes you feel thankful for what you have. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read.

I think the book should go on for longer and have when Audbry goes to her mum's and how she reacts to leaving gram and her friends and how they react and what happens when she goes to virginia and how her mum is and what her job is like.

It is a great story for any age, highly recommend!
