The Stars at Oktober Bend
This story may not be as good as the others, but I still really enjoyed it!
I find this book similar in some ways to Wonder by R.J Palacio. It features a girl, who, after suffering something terrible and now living in an unstable cottage, makes her way back into normal society by the co-star of the book. His name is Manny and he was a child soldier in Africa.
I would say that this book is suitable for 11 +, however some themes are difficult to grasp, as the author is careful with wording.
