Leon's Story, by Leon Tillage, is an amazing autobiography. It takes place in the South from the 1930's to the present day. Leon is an African-American born in the South. Although slavery is illegal, child labor ensues. Now this is like one of those president's biography that you have to read at school, only better. This is pretty quick read so you can read this in a couple of days. It also tells about the character so much that it feels like you're a part of his brain. A new part, learning what his life is like so far. The only concern I would have is violence. Well, I mean, what do you expect? Being an African-American in the 50's and all, but that's not the point. It's an overall amazing book and I will heavely recommend it to anyone on Earth. Well, everyone except a Klansman, but that's a story for another time.
