Leo's Love Story
September 01, 2011
What if you met the boy of your dreams, but you could never tell him the truth? When Leo ran away from home in 1947, he was hiding a secret and trying to escape his father's expectations. A strange experience with an alien being leaves Leo alone in 2011 with an even bigger secret. Falling in love leads Leo to have to make the hardest decision of his young life. Can he overcome his dark secret to find love and acceptance?
It's not often that a book surprises me with a little SciFi thrown into what I'm expecting to be a teen romance, but LEO'S LOVE STORY did just that. Alien abduction and quantum issues with time didn't seem out of place as I followed Leo's journey from World War II to the present. I felt as if I knew every character, or had at least met someone just like them at some point. The problems that Leo faces are universal themes that I think readers of all ages will feel able to relate. This was a great read -- short and to the point -- the perfect book for a long rainy weekend.
