Overview Leons hemmelighet

An intimate and personal story about Leon who discovers that he's in love – with Bendik.

Sexual identity and sexual confusion are important themes in contemporary youth literature, and Tor Fretheim's book goes right to the heart of the problem.

One day, 16-year-old Leon gets a cinema ticket from a boy who's a total stranger. They sit side by side in the cinema, talk to each other a bit and nothing much else happens. But Leon notices that something has changed. He thinks about the boy all the time, but when they finally meet up again, it's clear that the boy's brother doesn't want them to have contact.

Gradually, Leon understands something he had never realised before – that he falls in love with boys.
