The Stars at Oktober Bend
The Stars at Oktober Bend is an interesting book. It covers the story of Alice, a girl who is recovering from severe head trauma as her life is suddenly changed by the arrival of Manny, a refugee who is still getting to grips with the faults in his past. the book is engaging and beautifully written. Each character feels genuine and overall you can feel Alice's love of life penetrating her words and spilling out into the reader.
9 out of 10, marks being lost for comprehensibility.
