The Stars at Oktober Bend
Alice has an acquired brain injury. Manny James has a hidden history. Through unforeseen circumstances they meet and connect through alice's poems, the only way she can really communicate her feelings.
I really liked the unique format this book was written in. Even though there are no capital letters whenever Alice is narrating, it doesn't bother you after a while and adds to her character. Her poems are beautiful and even though she can't speak very well, she still comes across as very intelligent. I think the message of this book is that you can't judge a book by its cover. It really brings to the surface the world of speech disorders. The storyline was interesting and the whole book was very heartwarming, even if the storyline was hard to follow at some points.
