Read in August, 2010

After her dad and little sister are killed in a car accident and her mother mentally checks-out and abandons her, Aubrey goes to live with her grandmother in Vermont and tries to get past her family's tragedy.

This was really a remarkably-written story, as difficult as it was to get through. LaFleur managed to make Aubrey's memories not only vivid, but also very universal for anyone having grown up in the suburbs during the last 20 years.

I'm not sure I would give this to any child unless I knew her very well, and even then I would probably give it only to middle grade girls. Really, this struck me more as a book about a child, but written for teens/adults.
