The Stars at Oktober Bend

The stars at Oktober bend is certainly an unusual book, half being written in poetry and with NO capitals! It’s about a young disabled girl who tries to connect with other people through poetry she writes because she is unable to speak, but meets a boy who sees her for who she really is. I didn't finish reading the book. Personally I found it a confusing read for the most, the lack of capital letters doesn’t bother me but the way it’s written from Alice’s point of view confuses me, I find it too poetic. Don’t get me wrong from what I did read the story had a lovely idea, but the only time I felt the story went anywhere was when Manny spoke which, compared to Alice, isn’t much.
