An amazing story about Alice and Manny who find love and healing throughout differences .
Alice is fifteen and broken with a brain injury. her words come out slow and slurred. But when she writes, heartwords fly from her pen. She writes poems and leaves them in places around town.
Manny was once a child soldier. He is sixteen and has lost all his family. He appears to be adapting to his new life in this country but at night tries to run away from all his past .
This book really engaged me and made me feel a lot of emotion , understanding these different stories was a bit of a challenge. Trying to make yourself the character was hard but I loved this book.
