April Book Club

Don't be an April fool, pick up a copy of our latest
page-turner from Penguin, My Name is Leon

My Name Is Leon, Kit De Waal

A brother chosen. A brother left behind. And a family where you'd least expect to
find one.

Leon is nine, and has a perfect baby brother called Jake. Their mum isn't feeling herself, so they've gone to live with Maureen, who has fuzzy red hair like a halo and a belly like Father Christmas. But the adults are speaking in low voices, and wearing pretend faces. They are threatening to give Jake to strangers. Since Jake is white and Leon is not.

Evoking a Britain of the early eighties, My Name is Leon is a heart-breaking story of love, identity and learning to overcome unbearable loss. Of the fierce bond between siblings. And how - just when we least expect it - we manage to find our way home.
