The Stars at Oktober Bend

‘The Stars at Oktober Bend' is a beautiful book with a captivating and powerful story about the female protagonist Alice, who suffers mental health issues, who reached out to express herself through beautiful yet broken words. Manny is the male protagonist who is running to escape his past memories. When they meet they find the tender beginnings of love. Her pen is more of a weapon at it is used to write heartfelt words which she can't express and leaves them in unusual places around town. Manny is 16 years old and is currently adapting to his new surroundings. He runs every night barefoot to escape his past. Millars has created a masterpiece of sympathy yet hope of the two characters and that they have seen what no other child should have seen. It is a very emotional read and I would definitely recommend it:)
