My Name is Leon book review

My name is Leon
I really enjoyed this book.
The story only covers a relatively short length of time concerning a young lad, his mum and baby brother.
Leon is a young mixed raced boy who’s mum is seriously struggling to cope with caring for the 2 boys and eventually they are both taken into care and given to a ‘temporary foster mother. The story follows Leon over about the next 6 months. A very moving story dealing with some very serious topics but the book somehow remained light and enjoyable and not a demanding heavy read.
Will look for more from this author in the future.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley.
