My Name is Leon by Kit de Waal
My Name is Leon is a novel about the world of a loving and loyal 9-year old boy who is on a mission to reunite his family and on the way finds
a new home and family in unexpected places. This coming-of-age story follows Leon and his baby brother who are separated from their mother
to live under the foster care of Maureen. Whilst this novel centres on some heavy and sensitive subjects, it’s far from a tale of tragedy
and misery. Sprinkled with sunshine throughout, My Name is Leon is an inspirational, empowering and uplifting story that positively portrays the
experience of growing up in foster care in the 1980s.
