Book Review: The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller

The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller by L.B. Simmons: Death.

For some, it's simply one of life's certainties, nothing more. For others, it's merely a fleeting thought, one often overshadowed by the reckless delusion that they have been blessed with the gift of immortality.

For Aubrey Miller, death is the definition of her very existence. Overcome with the guilt resulting from the loss of her beloved family, she alters her appearance from the once beautiful, blonde-haired, blue-eyed little girl to that of one shrouded in complete darkness, enveloping herself in her own unbreakable fortress of solitude as a form of protection for others.

As she enters her first year of college, her goal is simple: Earn a degree with the least amount of social interaction as possible. What she never anticipates is the formation of very unlikely relationships with two people who will change her life in ways she never believed possible: Quinn Matthews, the boisterous former pageant queen, and Kaeleb McMadden, a childhood friend from her past who never really let her go.

Over the years, as their connections intertwine and grow, a seemingly indestructible bond is formed between the three...

But when death painfully reemerges, Aubrey is lost once again, burying herself deeper than ever before inside the familiar fortification of her fears.

Will the refuge of friendship, the solidarity of life-long bonds, and the power of unconditional love be enough to do the impossible?

Will they be enough to finally bring about...

The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller?

Lori's thoughts: I've wanted to read this book since it was first released, but never got around to it. It was a good read and it touched on a whole lot of different issues. Depression, Anorexia, Bullying, etc. Aubrey/Raven was a complex girl who kept a lot of pain stashed deep inside. She had to deal with a lot of loss in her life and dealt with it the best way she knew. In spite of her not wanting to let anyone into her life, she still managed to be a pretty darn good friend to Quinn. I can't stomach mean girls or people who bully, and there were some moments that had me cheering. Think "wearing a crown of cereal." It's a warm, touching story that I really liked. I just didn't love it. But you should still read it. :)
