The Truth About Leo
  • The Truth About Leo

  • 'It had happened again. Dad had shouted and yelled, thrown things and smashed things up. And then he had quietly cleaned everything away.'

    Leo's dad has changed. Since Mum died, his drinking is worse and now he's a different person, someone Leo doesn't recognize.

    The truth is that Leo is covering up for him and when things get bad Leo escapes into his own head, pretending everything's OK.

    Things need to change, but what can Leo do? No one understands, except maybe his friend Flora. Leo wants his old dad back so they can be happy again - because Dad is all he has left . . .
