Leah on the Off Beat- Becky Albertalli ★★★★

Blurb; 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?

My Review; I didn’t realise when I read this that this story was actually a follow on from book one in the Simon series. But it read fine as a Standalone for me and I will go back to book one at some point in the future. I absolutely love this author, the way she writes and the stories she tells, each story is very unique but lovely and heartwarming.

I devoured this book. I fell in love with Leah and her character. Loved every bit of her and her friends. A brilliant story. One that could help alot of the younger generation with coming out, being brave and accepting who they are. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
