Overview

Leonard Faye always wanted a brother, but, as fate would have it, he was destined to be an only child. Short and quiet, Leo is an outcast at school, finding himself the target of teasing and laughterâ€"the class bullies always pick on him and he is constantly left out of recess games. Leo is overjoyed at the prospect of a new kid at school, Donnie Southland, who matches him in height and lack of siblings. Soon, a friendship is forged as the two comrades teach each other everything from Mark Twain and football to self-confidence against class bullies. As their friendship grows, Leo soon notices telltale signs that maybe the two friends aren't as alike as he'd originally thought. Motherless and living with an alcoholic father, Donnie remains upbeat by learning more about Jesus from going to church with the Faye family. A tragic turn of events sends the boys into life-changing whirlwind, bringing Leo and Donnie closer to brothers than friends.

This was a delightful book to read... It reminded me of my childhood, and the questions we all have as children growing up. I didn't want to put it down, or for it to endâ€"Verna Loeffler
