Book title: Leah On The Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
Synopsis: When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat – but real life isn’t always so rhythmic. An anomaly in her friend group, she’s the only child of a young, single mum, and her life is decidedly less privileged. And even though her mom knows she’s bisexual, she hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends – not even her openly gay BFF, Simon. So Leah really doesn’t know what to do when her rock-solid friend group starts to fracture in unexpected ways…
Release date: 3rd May 2018
First thoughts: I am SO excited for this book! Given how much I love Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda, of course I’m ready to read more about this friend group! Leah was one of my favourite characters in the book, so it’ll be wonderful to have a book from her point of view. Plus, the fact that this book has bisexual representation is brilliant – it’s about time that there are books featuring bisexual characters!
