The Stars at Oktober Bend

The Stars at Oktober Bend is the most beautiful story I have ever read.
Alice, the main character, was mentally handicapped after a mysterious accident.
Manny is a 15 year old boy who saw his mother and sister get killed, and was made into a child soldier in his home country.
I love Alice's style of writing: she switches between verse and prose. Her poems are so incredible that they have inspired me and some people I know to start writing poetry.
This story is the type of story that puts every rainbow, every smile, every magical moment you have ever lived into words. Manny and Alice beat the odds and find happiness despite their grim pasts.
Alice wants to fly, and Manny can't stop running. This book will bring you to tears of sadness, but also of joy.
