I adore young adult fiction and, boy, did Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli—the sequel to Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda—deliver everything I love about the genre. Especially cynical, talented, confident one minute and socially awkward an hour later Leah Burke. Read this when you are in the mood for teenage angst, after school special plot lines, and characters you would have been fast friends with in high school. It is Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell meets the John Hughes film Sixteen Candles. Note: the audiobook is narrated by Shannon Purser of Stranger Things, Riverdale and Sierra Burgess is a Loser fame; and it is pure awesomeness. Best paired with a Coke and twenty shit-tons of M&Ms.
