Love in the Present Tense by Catherine Ryan

The Magic story of a young boy's search for his mother


Mitch is a 25-year-old with commitment issues. Leonard is a five-year-old kid with asthma and vision problems, who captivates everyone he meets. Pearl is Leonard's teenage mother, who's trying to hide a violent secret from her past. Life has given Pearl every reason to mistrust people, but circumstances force her to trust her neighbour Mitch.

And one day, a man from Peral's past arrives to take her away. She knows that is she is to preserve her dignity, she must go with him.
With a heart full of agony, Pearl drops Leonard off with Mitch and never returns.

Pearl, Leonard and Mitch each have a story to tell. As their lives unfold, profound questions arise about the nature of love and family. How do you go on loving someone who can't be there for you? The answes are heartbreaking, but ultimately triumphant, as Leonard and Mitch grow up side by side and piece together the layered truths and fictions of their almost magical lives.
