Told from 9 year old Leon's perspective, this debut takes place in England in the 1970's.
It is a well written and very touching commentary on foster care and multiple social issues. Even with all the obstacles in his path, Leon is very inspirational.

Interesting insights into the tricky world of foster care. In this case in England. There is racism, but there is hope also. I especially enjoyed Leon's voice as he describes his life as it happens to him.
