Non-Spoiler Book Review |”Leah on the Offbeat,” by Becky Albertalli

4.5/5 Stars

This book was soooooo funny! From page one till the end, I was cracking tf up! Like, I promise you’ll be crying too! (Tears of joy, of course).

From chapter one, Becky reminds us of what a great author she is. I love how she can keep up with the current teen-lingo, I love how modern her writing is. This book is focused on one of the characters from Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, the sequel to that book actually. It’s focused on Leah, in case it wasn’t obvious from the title. She’s the funniest most sarcastic, most savage teen I’ve ever met. I love her. Sometimes I did think that she was too much, but I still love her.

The gang at Creekwood Highschool is back and its now planning to go to their senior prom–and everyone is heading off to college so there’s this sort of nostalgia throughout the whole book. Leah has a crush and people don’t know she’s bi, so she’s fighting her desire and there’s a lot of drama between the friends, but in the end, everything fixes itself and everyone’s happy.

I truly enjoyed this book. It was so cute and funny. I’d never laughed so hard reading before, it was truly an awesome book. There’s mild cursing, and a lot of sex talk, just FYI, but nothing too explicit. Like a fourteen-year-old could read this.
