Mark and Kate have sat next to each other for an entire year but have never spoken. For whatever reason, their paths outside of class have never crossed. That is until Kate spots Mark miles away from home, out in the city for a wild, unexpected night. Kate is lost, having just run away from a chance to finally meet the girl she has been in love with from afar. Mark, meanwhile, is in love with his best friend, Ryan, who may or may not feel the same way.

This book was all around wonderful, from the way the kids bonded so quickly (ive had it happen, definitely gay culture) down all the way to the small details of pride week and the excitement of not being alone in who you are. I absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for more lgbt fiction to read.

When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat - but real life isn't always so rhythmic. She's an anomaly in her friend group: the only child of a young, single mom, and her life is decidedly less privileged. She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. 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. With prom and college on the horizon, tensions are running high.

Leah on the Offbeat is my favourite book ive read recently, mostly due to its wholesomeness and extreme relatability, even down to being so awkward around girls you like that they think you hate them. I could not recommend this book enough, especially if awkward, fluffy, messy and OBLIVIOUS romances are your thing.
