The Stars at Oktober Bend

I read 'The Stars at October Bend' and I thought the book was great. The book was very confusing at the start but once you got further into it, it became a lot clearer what was going on. The 2 main characters are Alice and Manny, and they have very different backgrounds. One is from Sierra Leone and was a boy soldier. He ran to get away from what he did there. Alice has a condition where she will be 12 forever. Her wires are crossed and she doesn't go to school because of it. All day she writes poems and looks after her grandma. The book overall was about 2 lost souls that found happiness within each other.
