The Stars at Oktober Bend, Paperback / softback Book

The Stars at Oktober Bend Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Alice is fifteen, with hair as red as fire and skin as pale as bone, but something inside her is broken.

She has a brain injury, the result of an assault. Manny was once a child soldier. He is sixteen and has lost all his family. When Manny first sees Alice, she is sitting on the rusty roof of her river house, looking like a carving on an old-fashioned ship, sailing through the stars.

He has a poem in his pocket and he knows the words by heart. And he is sure that girl has written them. When Manny and Alice meet they find the beginnings of love and healing.
