The Stars at Oktober Bend

The Stars at Oktober Bend is an amazing book for those who like to read life stories including tragedies or sad events. Its wonderful how Glenda Millard used the 2 perspectives of Manny and Alice.
It's about a girl whose mother left her, father died, grand-father IS in jail, her grandmother has breathing problems and her younger brother is older and looking after her and grand-mother. The worst thing is that she has to be in a 12 year old's body forever as she has got an illness preventing her from growing up. She can't go to school, she just started to learn how to write. Its about her life and I love it. I would definitely recommend it.
