"My Name is Leon" by Kit de Waal

In My Name is Leon by Kit de Waal, Leon is a 9-yr.-old boy who lives with his mom.  His dad left a while ago.  His mom pretty much leaves him to fend for himself.  Add a new baby to the mix, and that is trouble!  Pretty soon Leon and his baby brothe4r get put into a foster home.  His baby brother gets adopted, but not Leon!  Leon will find his brother if it is the last thing he does.

This book started out strong, but when a bunch of new characters get brought in, it kind of went off track.  However, the ending brings the book back on track.
(Gerard's review, 4 stars)

Teaser from page 29:  "She's been taken to the hospital, love.  You could see she wasn't well."
