The Stars at Oktober Bend

The Stars at Oktober Bend - Glenda Millard

This is quite an intense, although very moving story of 15 year old red haired Alice, she suffers a tragic and life changing attack at age 12. As a result, Alice, who describes herself as 'broken', can no longer express herself adequately through speech. She learns to communicate quite effectively through her poetry.
Joey, her protective younger brother, Manny the boy she shares her pain and heart with and Bear her beloved and loyal dog are the main characters who help shape her story.
