The Symphony of Leif

 Leif, a 14 year old boy from Hawaii, learns of a "unique teaching style" at a place called Lamia, a Scientology boarding school, in a remote corner of the Pacific Northwest. Desperate to escape his current school and his domineering father, Leif enrolls. At first blush the Lamia School seems to be a dream come true, but soon Leif discovers darker and more sinister intentions than educating young minds.

Stranded far from home, Leif must maneuver through a world of zealous students, totalitarian teachers and brutal punishments, while striving to make friends, find love, and cope with all the trials of adolescents.

If Leif survives the insidious Lamia School, what kind of adult will be forged in this contemporary coming-of-age novel?


Excerpt

My piano was destroyed. Despair mixed with the anger. Like sand, it seemed to find the cracks and rub the already bruised areas raw. My piano was gone. I’d never play it again. I wish I could have heard ‘Katrina’s Theme,’ one last time.



Professional Reviews

Professor
The Symphony of Leif presents an uncommon coming of age story written with dark irony and a sincere juvenile quest to answer universal questions about love, death, friendship, race, and religion.

--Dr. Luis Maldonado, Professor of Literature at SMU


Headmaster
The young author is masterful at blending internal dialogue with conversation, and captures the lingo and thought patterns of young women and men.

--Dr. Olaf Jorgenson, Headmaster of Hawaii Preparatory Academy (added by author)


Teacher
Terrific read for anybody who grew up in Hawaii, went to boarding school or navigated or is navigating the stormy passage through adolescence. The author captures the angst of an adolescent.

--Robert A. Bonar "bbonar" (
