A Medal for Leroy

Michael can’t remember his father, who died in a Spitfire over the English Channel. And his mother, heartbroken and passionate, doesn’t like to talk about him. But then Michael’s aunt gives him a medal and a photo which unravel a hidden story of love and loss. A story that will change everything – and show Michael who he really is… Told with all of Michael Morpurgo’s skill and compassion, this is a moving tale of identity and the lingering legacy of war.
