Praise

Though teens may be hesitant at first, they will be rewarded with a compelling, moving portrait of characters who have been through tragedy and can see through to the other side. A heartwarming story that is a worthy addition to high school libraries.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Alice’s first- person narration is bereft of capital letters, which adds a sense of fragility and nicely contrasts with Manny’s third-person perspective…this is an original and gritty love story that will appeal to fans of Ellen Hopkins.
—Booklist

Alice and Manny are two incredible souls, and their story is filled with pain and beauty. THE STARS AT OKTOBER BEND is told in both of their voices, though Alice’s words are the ones that made me linger on each page…I wanted to rush through to the end to see the outcome, but I wanted to pause after every one of Alice’s descriptions and drink in her words. Glenda Millard has written an unforgettable story of two teens dealing with pain that no one should have to endure. THE STARS AT OKTOBER BEND is more than a book; it’s a gift to the reader, and I highly recommend it.
