Leah on the Offbeat Book Summary/Review:

You've seen Leah in the groundbreaking major motion picture Love Simon (based on the amazing Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda). Now it's her turn to take centre stage. -------- 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, 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? -------- Praise for Becky Albertalli: 'The love child of John Green and Rainbow Rowell' Teen Vogue 'I love you, Simon. I love you! And I love this fresh, funny, live-out-loud book.' Jennifer Niven, New York Times bestselling author of All the Bright Places 'A remarkable gift of a novel.' Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle 'Both hilarious and heartbreaking . . . Readers will fall madly in love with Simon' Publishers Weekly (starred review) 'A brilliant beacon of optimism and cuteness for LGBTQA+ youth in a genre often bogged down with tragedy and heartbreak. Books like SIMON do change people's lives' Waterstones Darlington Bookseller 'A wonderfully charismatic story about coming-of-age and coming out'. Bookseller 'Funny, moving and emotionally wise' Kirkus Reviews (starred) 'It made me laugh, cry and all the fifty shades of emotions I can think of right now. There is literally no adjectives that would be suffice to describe how brilliant this book is' Goodreads (5 star review) 'I think I just felt my heart explode in my chest' Goodreads (5 star review) 'One of the most electric, authentic characters I've ever read. . . I LOVE this book. LOVE it. Five freaking stars.' Goodreads (5 Stars)
