Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli – Book Review

We’re back in the Simonverse – the world of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda but this time our focus is on Leah, Simon’s best mate and very cool chick. Leah’s trying to work out how and when to tell her friends that she’s bi, which feels like it should be less hard given that Simon is gay, but sometimes having queer friends doesn’t mean it’s easy to reveal your own queerness.

This is a strong YA read, I’m a big fan of Albertalli and the worlds she creates, and spending time with these characters is a lot of fun. I can’t believe that somehow I missed the second book in this world, The Upside of Unrequited, and I will be seeking that one out.
