Matt Hudson has a task – to write letters to a historical character. Letters that fulfil a class assignment. Letters that help the character see how life has changed from then to now.

But some things don’t change – and Matt discovers that he and Leonardo have a lot in common.

Dear Leonardo,
How did you feel when you met your mother again?

Through letters to Leonardo da Vinci, Matt explores the changing face of his own life. A life shaken to the core with a card from his dead mother on his 15th birthday.

Dear Leonardo,
Truth is important in art, don’t you think?
Truth is important full stop.

Letters to Leonardo is Dee White’s first YA novel. A crafted work of art.
