Return to the world of SIMON VS THE HOMO SAPIENS AGENDA with companion novel LEAH ON THE OFFBEAT!
Seeing as today is birthday to both Becky Albertalli and her first lead character, Simon Spier, Epic Reads deemed at a fitting day to release all the deets on Leah’s upcoming story, including a stunning neon cover that made us smile from ear to ear! Take a look at the cover and official description below.
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 worked up the nerve 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.
It’s hard for Leah to strike the right note while the people she loves are fighting—especially when she realizes she might love one of them more than she ever intended.
Leah On The Offbeat won’t be in stores until April 24, 2018, but you can pre-order it now via Amazon!
There’s even more good news if you’re a fan of the Simon Vs universe. A special edition of the book that started it all is hitting shelves on January 30, 2018, complete with Simon and Blue’s original emails, a behind-the-scenes scrapbook from the Love, Simon movie, and a conversation between Becky and fellow YA authors Angie Thomas and Adam Silvera! That’s also available for pre-order on Amazon now.
There’s also the movie tie-in edition of Simon Vs featuring Nick Robinson as Simon Spier!
So, that’s Simon Vs special edition on January 30th, Love, Simon the movie on March 16th, and Leah On The Offbeat on April 24th! Get ready!
