A tragic accident has turned eleven-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.I thought this was a beautifully written novel! Suzanne LeFluer truly has the eleven year old girl persona down. Anyone no matter what your age, can relate with Aubrey when it comes to have a tragic loss in the family. The book is sectioned into places where Aubrey is living at the time: Virginia, Vermont, and Home. If you read the book you will know where the last part is!
While living with her grandmother Aubrey becomes friends with a girl named Bridget who is just as lovable as Aubrey as well as her little sister Mabel and brother Danny. I felt connected with all of the characters and really enjoyed this one! There are also letters from Aubrey in the book and they're nice to read as well. I highly recommend this one, it was a quick read for me because I couldn't put it down.
