The Stars at Oktober Bend
The Stars at Oktober Bend overflows with poetry. The two narrators, Alice and Manny have to overcome horrors in their past; Alice is brain damaged from an assault and Manny is a refugee from Sierra Leone. Alice writes poetry and Manny runs to escape the past. Can they help each other face up to the past as well as overcome dangers in the present? This book moves slowly to an exciting climax as Alice and Manny learn to trust each other.
