The Leros Code

A group of boys and girls travel to Leros for the holidays.  There they will meet new friends and brave a thrilling, yet dangerous, adventure.  Whilst trying to preserve a document of unique importance about the history of the island, they are faced with a ruthless gang.

This is novel full of summertime, sea, jealousy, childhood love, and… adults who often act like children.  But, it is also a novel with an important and timely social message inasmuch as one of protagonists is little Elias, a Syrian refugee.  Together with his family he will get to know the harsh face of reality, but he will also taste the warmth of solidarity and friendship.
