The Stars at Oktober Bend

Another 'real life' type story which was engaging and deeply sad in some places. The story centres around the two main characters, Manny and Alice, both of whom have suffered in their lives so far. As Manny and Alice meet and become friends we are presented with a view into their lives and those around them in the small knit community of Oktober Bend. Chapters are written from either Manny or Alice's point of view and Alice's chapters are written in a style to convey her re learning of using language following an extremely traumatic experience. A really inspiring story.
