Matchmaker – Leo L.

Leo's desert island reads:

  • Eragon by Christopher Paolini
  • Counting by 7s by Holly Sloane
  • Physician's Desk Reference, hollowed-out, and inside there'd be waterproof matches, iodine tablets, beet seeds, protein bars, a NASA blanket, and, in case I get bored, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. No, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Question: did my shoes come off in the plane crash?
  • Scythe by Neal Shusterman

What Leo does when he's not reading:

  • playing video games
  • watching movies
  • hiking
  • photographing cars

If Leo could meet any literary character, or visit any literary world, it would be:

I'd love to visit Hogwarts! It would be absolutely mind-blowing to wander around and take in all the sights. The scene where Harry enters Diagon Alley for the first time has always stuck with me. I mean, who wouldn't be thrilled to have their own pet owl? I'd also stop by Hagrid's place and see all the mythical creatures!

Ask Leo what to read.
