The Stars at Oktober Bend

The Stars at Oktober Bend was a well written book that delicately told the stories through the eyes of young teens that don't quite fit in. It really conveys the struggles people go through when those around them are not educated enough to know that everyone is the same; but being unique is the best thing to be. The book also has a lovely way of conveying the strong bonds of family and friends, and the measures people go to for the people they hold close to their heart. Glenda Millard has a clever way of writing to portray that the character- Alice- has a brain injury and cannot write as well as others. Also, in the way it was so realistic and original; it also made the book quite confusing as the grammar, and some sentences did not quite make sense. This is a great read but I would say that by making it so realistic, it took away from the majority of the enjoyment; as the reader is constantly trying to keep up.
