Leslie's Journal - Allan Stratton. I really loved this book. Although it was a little disturbing at times it is a really great and inspirational story. langandlitGo to langandlit's profile. This book was really good :)The book was a thrilling, once you read it you can't let go. It's also fast paced so you never get bored.

Thankfully she matures throughout the book which really showed that she changed for the better.
