The Stars at Oktober Bend

The Stars at Oktober bend was my first Carnegie book and I could only urge myself in reading 10 pages; I was mightily repulsed as Glenda began explaining the traumas and self-harming that some disabled children experience. Furthermore, to distinguish the difference between the two characters, Glenda Millard didn't include any Capital letters or well structured punctuation for Alice, with her having learning difficulties. This really agitated me! I recommend not to misjudge the blurb which I always read for myself to decide on a certain book, it is completely different. However if your debating whether to read it or not, its partly about a teenage girl named Alice Nightingale who expresses her feelings and thoughts through writing poems until an unknown boy discovers one and seeks to find its author...
