Synopsis:

Florence and Leon have never met. Florence is a swimming instructor. She has a small problem with her lungs: it’s as if she’s breathing through a straw. Leon is an insurance salesman. He has a small problem with his eyes: it’s as if he’s seeing the world through a straw. One day Florence and Leon bump into each other, literally, and this mishap turns their lives upside down. Over slushy drinks with proper straws, Florence and Leon find out how their differences make them alike.

 

Book Review:

This lovely picture book tells a story about two people who meet one day and they seem to “click” immediately, they share stories of their own disabilities (Florence has a problem with her lungs and Leon has a problem with his eyes) and try to relate to each other.

The romance is sweet and the illustrations are beautiful. This is a children’s book but I think teens and adults would enjoy it too.
