The Stars at Oktober Bend
Why do we read books? To experience this world you cannot ever experience. If we say that our world is blocked with a huge wall all around it, books are the things that get us over that wall. But what makes the best book? It is when it allows you to cross that wall and become someone completely different.
The reason why 'The Stars at Oktober Bend' is so far one of my favourite books is because while reading it, you *become* Alice and Manny. It doesn't matter whether you've never met them or you don't have a brother or don't play soccer, it makes you feel like you do.
Sometimes it's hard to get into a book, to actually feel like you're in the book. The Stars of Oktober Bend is the complete opposite of this because you'll probably have a really hard time getting back out.
