This version of the eighties isn’t rose tinted nostalgia. My Name is Leon is about a biracial child in care, how he gets there and how he comes to terms with the realities of his life. Tough in places, well observed and a terrific read.
The animals are the stars of The Last Wild. You almost don’t notice the lack of humans in this book as the animals are marvellous characters with amusing personalities. Plus when we do get to meet humans, they’re not all that nice.

Becoming surprised me with the scope it covered and the detail that it went into. It was a lovely window into the life of a public figure that I initally thought that I didn’t need to know more about. Thankfully I was proved wrong.
