Leigh Botts is Mr. Henshaw’s greatest fan, in his many letters to his mentor, Leigh tells all of his trials and tribulations of living in a new place and missing his dad. Leigh wants to be a writer like Mr. Henshaw but he despairs of achieving his dream. This story is told by letters and diary entries that Leigh has written. His progression to becoming the writer of his dreams can be seen by us, even if he isn’t quite aware of it.
