Despite his size, Alex is perfectly healthy. However, his body grows at one-fourth the rate of a normal child-so that after one year, he's the size of a three-month-old-but his mind grows much quicker. Eventually, so do certain parts of his body and his ability to do various and unusual things with them.
As Alex's special abilities become apparent, those around him see him as both a miracle child and a freak of nature-a freak to exploit.
How Alex saves himself from the designs of others is at the heart of the novel.

Marc is a wonderful talent! I especially loved his
character descriptions, exposition, and plot development. By mid novel I was simply into page turning (or tapping since I do eBooks) to discover what Alex’s fate would be. He made it so easy to get attached to him, the one guileless character in the bunch. I can't wait for his next novel!

One of my New Year's Resolutions was to read more and I started with The Leap Year Boy ... and what a delightful choice it was! I just curled up with my Nook and couldn't wait to discover what would happen next in Alex's life. Alex touched my life in a special way as I know he will with all who flip these pages. Hope a sequel is in the works! Kudos!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
