My review & thoughts on Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli (contains minor spoilers from Simon vs)
When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat– but real life isn’t always so rhythmic. The only child of a single mum, and her life is less privileged than her friends.
Her mum knows she’s bisexual, but Leah hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends. Not even her openly gay BFF, Simon. Prom and college are on the horizon, and tensions are running high. Can Leah still strike the right note, when the people she loves are fighting? And how can she cope knowing that she might love one of her friends more than she ever intended?
