Megan, Long Stratton High

The Stars at Oktober Bend

What really annoyed me about this book was the fact that it didn't have any capital letters when Alice was narrating the story. Therefore, I couldn't see where a new sentence started. Also, I thought this story was so slow moving. I barely moved even when I'd read 20 pages.
I liked the fact that it was written using two perspectives but at the end after the flood I would have liked to see Manny visiting Alice in hospital. I thought it was rather a surprise that her dad was with her at the end. It seemed rather nice but I didn't like the way they kept repeating themselves and counting down the days. It seemed an odd way to celebrate their father coming home.
