Review: Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli (Spoiler-Free)

I did not realize that I would relate to Leah this much. Her and I are legit the same person. Like how many female drummers who wear TARDIS socks and love Six of Crows are there in the world?

I'd bet it's just me and Leah Burke and that's why she's so awesome. I found her to be so relatable in every way. I was also not expecting to love how the story continues from Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. BUT I DID. My babies Simon and Bram are still together and that's all I needed to happen to stay happy :) Also, as per usual with Becky Albertalli there is so much representation in this book, even more than her first and second. There are multiple bisexual characters, someone who goes by the pronoun "they," and so on. I flew through this so quickly even though I'm so busy with finals right now. Becky Albertalli's books are just like a bag of gummy bears for me. I sit down with it and after an absurdly short amount of time it's gone. But it sure does leave a sweet taste in my mouth.

Song I was reminded of while reading: Ilysb
