Tumble Turn – Doug MacLeod

Dominic Dear, an almost thirteen-year-old, is confused about life. He’s considered odd to his family and his school teachers. And he starts to fall in love in a very odd way.

The book is written in a series of letters between Dominic and his uncle Peri. We get to learn a lot about both characters – why Dominic is who he is, and why his family never talk about uncle Peri.

This book touches on a lot of relevant topics, including homosexuality. It touches on them in a way that makes you think. I was able to emotionally connect with both characters on a really deep level.

What happens in the end takes me totally by surprise. I highly recommend this novel!
