membuatnya merintih, meratap saat kesadaran itu mengoyak jiwanya, saat dia memahami sulit untuk menggapai mereka yang meninggalkannyacampur aduk yang gw rasain pas baca buku ini, sedih saat aubrey menyangkal apa yang terjadi..marah saat pertama ibunya meninggalkan aubrey tanpa pesan..miris saat aubrey berusaha tinggal sendiri..menangis saat aubrey merintih dan meratap, terpuruk di tengah hutan..tersenyum saat aubrey dengan kekuatannya menemani bridget di unit gawat darurat hehehe belum kenal sebenernya ma pemiliknya, di rak petrik ada buku ini, punya mba Nenny katanya makasih ya mbaaaa dah kelar baca baru nge add friend p Bicara tentang kehilangan, tidak pernah sederhana..Meski ia datang, kadang dengan cara yang teramat mudah..Bukankah aneh, kita justru merasa sesak kala merasakan ketiadaan Isi kepala begitu penuh hingga tak mampu menampung sisi hidup yang lain..Mengapa kekosongan alihalih menjelma semesta saat dirasa rengat di hati Seakan belum cukup kepergian Dad dan Savannah dalam kecelakaan yang tragis, Aubrey, gadis 11 tahun, masih harus mengalami kehilangan ibu nya..Tapi bukan hanya Aubrey, ibu nya sendiri pun kehilangan diri nya sendiri..Beliau tidak

Emak untuk saya peluk..Kapan pun saya merasa dunia ingin menelan saya bulatbulat, Emak masih ada untuk mendengarkan saya..Apalagi setelah tadi pagi saya berbincang dengan Ayu..At some point, she felt tired of things, and she texted her mom..Ini balasan si mamah,Kalo kamu ngerasa gak kuat jalan, merangkaklah, belajar lagi dari awal buat berjalan Tapi jangan pernah berhenti Kalo kamu merasa capek, menangislah, habiskan dan kamu akan bisa ketawa lagi, tapi jangan pernah berhenti ya, nak Percaya aja sama Allah Sing sabar ya, Nduk See Betapa beruntungnya kita yang masih punya Ibu untuk menguatkan kita..Sedangkan Aubrey Tuhan..Untungnya Gram datang, menyelamatkan Aubrey..Membawa nya ke rumah dan mulai membangun sedikit demi sedikit kekuatan Aubrey..Dan meski di awal pertemuan dengan Brdiget dan keluarganya justru membuat perut Aubrey bergejolak sesak, tapi mereka terlalu hangat hingga Aubrey merasa nyaman berada di tengah mereka..Aubrey mulai mampu berdiri kuat..Dan sekali lagi, nampaknya ujian belum selesai..Mom datang..Masih dengan ketidakmampuan menopang emosi nya sendiri..Lalu perut Aubrey bergejolak lagi Mungkin karena kehilangan tidak pernah menjadi pilihan..Saat kehilanganmu, contohnya..Jika bukan karena simpul yang terpaksa aku jalin, kehilanganmu pasti kan terjadi dalam cara yang lain..Jua ketika Bapak pergi, di Idul Fitri lima tahun Hijriah yang lalu..Apa kami bisa memilih untuk tidak merasakan hampa saat lutut yang seharusnya kami cium di hari yang fitri justru telah terbujur kaku Yang aku yakini, hanya ada satu kehilangan yang sepenuhnya menjadi pilihan untuk kita..Satusatu nya yang berada dalam genggaman kita..KehilanganNya..Karena Dia tak pernah tiada..Acapkali, kita yang melupakan keberadaanNya.. dengan tambahan kata dari sini Love, Aubrey is another book to add to my pile of children left behind novelsand yet I enjoyed it I had heard a lot of very complimentary things about this novel before I read it and so I was expecting a lot I really wasn t all that sure what to think about it as I started reading I was piecing together the story well before elements were confirmed and yet I was in the present with Aubrey This could just be a story about grief, instead it s about being left behind, and all that that means.The eleven year old protagonist is not someone I would normally want to read about She s mourning her family how it once was, what it isn t now She s barely keeping her head above the waters swirling with grief, depression, anger and need What surprised me is how removed I felt and how much emotion I felt I am contradicting myself I know, but that s how I felt The anger I felt towards Elizabeth is overwhelming, I understand on a base level that her depression overrode her daughter s needs but I didn t care She left her child alone The last remaining member of her immediate family and she just up and left her How dare she While Aubrey s being difficult with her grandmother, befriending Bridget or missing Savannah I didn t really connect But it took one letter to her father to break me I find it interesting that the one member of the family, the one mentioned the least, could elicit so much emotion from me It was then I realised how beautifully crafted this novel is Each word is deliberate LaFleur s words are delicately placed creating a whirlwind of contrasting emotions that race through you, leaving an emotional wreck behind It is a stunning debut effort, one that I am reluctant to quantify because I cannot place why it is so good Perhaps it s the use of simple language which leaves you feeling sparse Maybe it s the number of emotions, conclusions and thoughts that aren t ever directly stated Maybe it s both Regardless, this book is a revelation and the start to a very promising career for Suzanne LaFleur.

fiction Fiuuuh, that was a hard long ride, reading this book.No, not because this is not a good book, but because it s so heart wrenching, yet so beautifully written, even after it got translated.Ceritanya tentang seorang gadis cilik berusia 11 tahun Di awal buku diceritakan kalau pada suatu pagi Ibu gadis ini tiba tiba menghilang dan meninggalkan dia begitu saja Hal itu ternyata karena keluarga mereka baru saja kehilangan Ayah dan seorang anak, Savannah, adik Aubrey.Awalnya Aubrey nggak bilang pada siapa pun tentang kepergian Ibunya, tapi akhirnya Gram, neneknya, datang dan mengetahui itu semua Gram akhirnya membawa Aubrey ke Vermont dari Virginia untuk tinggal bersamanya.Di Vermont, Aubrey memulai kehidupan yang baru, dia bahkan memiliki sahabat baru, Bridget, yang tinggal di sebelah rumah Gram Keluarga Bridget masih utuh, dan dia memiliki dua orang adik.Mereka sering bermain ke dalam hutan, dan Aubrey sering meninggalkan surat suratnya kepada Jilly yang misterius di pohon luka milik Bridget Mereka bermain luncur salju, membuat manusia salju, berkemah di halaman, mendatangi pesta Holloween Christian yang sedang ditaksir Bridget, dan merayakan ulang tahun Aubrey bersama Marcus, cowok dari kelas Aubrey yang ceria tapi diam diam sedih.Lalu, ketika akhirnya Ibu Aubrey tiba tiba muncul kembali, haruskah Aubrey kembali ke Virginia yang gelap dan suram seperti yang diingatnya dan meninggalkan kehidupan barunya yang menyenangkan di Vermont Saya membaca buku ini di kereta dalam perjalan ke kampus Jadilah saya harus berkali kali mengusap sudut mata dengan sembunyi sembunyi, supaya penumpang lainnya nggak ada yang menyadari air mata yang mendesak muncul gara gara membaca buku ini.Semua orang yang merasa butuh a good cry harus membaca buku ini, atau mungkin, orang orang yang merasa butuh diyakinkan bahwa bahkan setelah yang terburuk terjadi pun, harapan akan selalu ada, dan kesempatan untuk tertawa gembira pasti akan muncul kembali.Dan nggak ada yang salah dari hal itu.Selamat menikmati Selamat menangis, selamat tertawa, dan tentunya, selamat membaca I picked this up on the the strength of the title font along the spine I glanced at the cover, flipped it over and read the back I opened it up, read the first few pages and decided I was taking it home with me Surprisingly, this doesn t usually happen I frequently pick up books because of the way they look Reading the back usually induces me to put them back on the shelf If the book passes that test, I read the first couple of sentences and, usually, a few random passages through the book Rarely will I read the first few pages, instead of just the first few sentences When a book manages to draw me in like that I buy it Which is what happened with this book.This is a heart breaking story about death, grief and loss It should be required reading for all children, and everyone who is too old to have had it required of them Every single one of you should read this book This is not a typical children s book This is a book that deals with real life issues in a way that does not require the metaphor of fantasy It s an emotional survival handbook that is relevant to anyone who has ever lost someone to grief. Rounding up to 4 Stars I read this aloud to my daughter This novel begins with Aubrey left to fend for herself after her mother flees in response to the accidental death of her husband and youngest daughter Not only is Aubrey making sense of her unimaginable grief of losing her dad and little sister, she s been abandoned by her mother The first chapter draws you in Aubrey is living alone, in secret, scraping money together to buy canned food, insisting to herself that she will be just fine Holed up in her house, she is willing to wait as long as it takes for her mom to return I almost wanted the book to explore her self reliance , but soon Aubrey is rescued by her grandmother This left me slightly disappointed, until I got to know Gram The characters in Love, Aubrey are beautifully crafted This is not a plot driven story but rather one of relationships and slow recovery I may have enjoyed it than my daughter, who cried, It s sooo sad But she still handed the book off to a friend excitedly.
