Synne Lea
Leo and Mei

Leo and Mei live on the same street. They live in the same type of house, each a mirror image of the other. But that is where the similarities end. Mei’s parents give her warmth and security, while Leo's existence is difficult and violent. Leo needs Mei to be there for him. And Mei needs Leo.
Leo and Mei is a novel about a special friendship put through great tests, a friendship that must be stronger than anything else, and that might just live up to the task. It is a painful and yet hopeful novel written in a unique, confident and poetic style.
