The Stars at Oktober Bend

At the beginning it was harder to read this book, than the other books because there were no capital letters and so you couldn't see the sentences clearly. Also at the start, all of the things that happened to the girl were only referred to and never said exactly what it was, but I think that this just made the book more interesting to read, as I wanted to find out if what I thought had happened to her was actually what happened. By the middle, the book completely took me in and I couldn't put it down. I don't know if it was because it was so interesting or because I had nothing else to do, but I was reading it all the time. I never thought that I could enjoy a book about such a depressing topic of a girl with mental issues and health problems, but it surprised me almost as much as Salt to the Sea. Overall my opinion of the book is really high, as I really enjoyed it and felt it compelling. I think this book might have been the book that I finished the fastest out of all the other Carnegie books and it was one of the novels that I enjoyed the most. I would rate this book a 9/10 because it really surprised me in an extremely good way.
