Francesca, King Alfreds Academy

The Stars at Oktober Bend

This book is beautiful yet so confusing. The story's main characters are Alice and Manny. Alice had an accident when she was 12 and it gave her brain damage. She lives with her dying nan and Joey (her adorable brother). Manny is from Sierra Leone, I think he was a soldier at one point and is trying to recover from that. He speaks overly clear English which is a part of his character. Oktober Bend isn't a mis-spelling of October as I first thought, it's a place. People want to hurt Alice and Joey but I don't know why as nothing I read actually makes sense to me. This book is generally good but I don't like it but that's my fault and not the author.
