Yet another book about a child losing one parent in an accident and the other through emotional distance. In this case, 11-year-old Aubrey loses both her father and her younger sister in a car accident, and then is abandoned by her devastated mother. I've read several of these lately, but was still moved by this one. Aubrey's first person voice is very authentic and helps carry the story. Despite the profound loss and grief, the story is ultimately uplifting. Aubrey (like Georgia in Pieces of Georgia) discovers that writing letters to the people she has lost is good therapy. A good choice for students dealing with a loss of their own or anyone who likes an emotional read.
