I wasn't sure Leah could live up to Simon, but I'm so very glad I was proven wrong. I can't get enough of this group of kids, thank you for sharing them with us!
"“It was amazing,” I say. “It was unicorns vomiting sunbeams.”"
So the book follows Leah, the best friend Simon from Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda. It’s their senior year and prom is closing in. It’s pretty character driven, a little bit of a plot appearing around halfway through. She realises she has feelings for one of her female friends and she had to figure out how to handle that.
The romance was done so well. It took its time as Leah isn’t out as bisexual to anyone but her mum, and she’s convinced she’s straight. I loved the development of the romance and it had a great payoff. It made me so happy to read and I’m already craving more of them.
I loved Leah a lot too. I connected with her throughout the book. I also loved her relationship with her mum. Since she had her young they were clearly closer because of it.
This was an overall amazing book and I cannot recommend it enough.
I will admit, that in the original book it was so gripping I couldn’t put it down, but in this novel the storyline is more complicated, slightly less gripping whilst still being a high quality product that can be read over several days.
Overall Leah on the Offbeat is a great book to compliment Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda.
