The Stars at Oktober Bend

The stars at oktober bend

I really enjoyed this book because it was gripping and you just wanted to keep reading. Every chapter was short but had a big meaning so you wanted to find out what happened next. I really like reading the book however, I didn’t like that fact that there weren’t any capital letters for anything, even names. In the book there were two main character Alice and Manny (Manny is introduced in the middle of the book). As you get in the book Manny starts to speak and he has a completely different way of writing. To me that tells you about where they both come from. I really felt sorry for Alice because she could not go to school and she was home all the time. To me I felt very ashamed of myself that sometimes I take school for granted and how lucky I am. I would definitely have recommended this book to 12+ for many reasons. To me there are some parts to the book that you could get, and others that you need to think about. The mood of the book is quite rocky like you don’t know what is going to happen. This makes the characters depend on each other and are not always the happiest bunch. In most of the chapters the main character talks about the people around her so you always know who is in the book. In the first few chapters there is no description of the main characters. You jump straight into the book that is why I really like it. I think it is a great read.
