I Am Leon

Finished I Am Leon by Kit De Waal. I received a copy for review. 

This book should come with a warning label because it will break your heart. 

Leon is the greatest big brother. His little brother Jake is a baby but Leon is almost nine. And when their mom won’t get out of bed, he takes care of Jake. 
But when people learn about this, the boys are separated. Jake’s a baby and gets adopted quickly; Leon’s older (and black) and doesn’t. He has a good foster mom but she’s also sick. 
Leon decides he needs to do what he needs to do to get back to Jake. 
It’s so good, guys. And so sad. (And also happy, at least in parts.) I love Leon and I won’t forget him. Highly recommended.
