‘My heart broke a little bit for Lani and Leon. He Is Mine and I Have No Other vividly calls up the atmosphere of small-town life. Eerie, tender and wonderful’ Sophie Mackintosh, author of The Water Cure
Shortlisted for the Kate O’Brien Award
In 1990s small-town Ireland, fifteen-year-old Lani Devine falls in love with Leon Brady, whose mother is buried in the cemetery next to Lani’s house. Quiet and strange, Leon is haunted by a brutal family tragedy that has left scars much more than skin-deep. As Lani falls deeper and deeper in love with him, old wounds begin to reopen and start to change the shape of their lives forever.
