The Stars at Oktober Bend

Alice is fifteen years old, and it has been three years since her head injury. She struggles to speak words, but she communicates her problems and dreams through poetry signed by 'anon' and left at various places. When Manny sees her on her rooftop one night, he is certain the poems are hers.
I enjoyed this story a lot, and I think it is possibly my favourite. The way it is written from Alice's point of view gives us a unique view on how life is for her, and it also changes to Manny's point of view so that we can understand their friendship. I definitely recommend this.
