The Stars at Oktober Bend

I think this book is very hard to get into and very complicated with a romantic twist, I think this because the author Glenda Millard has used the technique of visual writing as the text at the beginning can be perceived to be a young child writing a some-like diary or story to her self and in this diary she describes her self to go through some traumatizing moments which have left mental scars in her mind this I think leads the writer to describe her to be like a low valued-toy. On the other side of the story's mirror is a boy with a very similar experience to Alice which brings them together like a magnet until they meet each other and fall in love . This book also helps the reader comprehend a great but common meaning which it be proud of who you are and don't let any influence you. As the story and characters developed the book starts to enhance you into it as you become more familiar of the plot this prompts you to start to make contradiction and predictions of what will happen next. This deserves a SILVER STAR!!!!
Only because it was a very advanced book in technique and was quite hard to get into the flow of the book.
