Publisher Description

When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat - but real life isn't always so rhythmic. An anomaly in her friend group, she's the only child of a young, single mum, and her life is decidedly less privileged. 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. 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.

Review

A brilliant beacon of optimism and cuteness for LGBTQA+ youth in a genre often bogged down with tragedy and heartbreak. Books like SIMON do change people's lives -- Waterstones Darlington Both hilarious and heart-breaking Publishers Weekly (starred review) A remarkable gift of a novel. -- Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle The love child of John Green and Rainbow Rowell Teen Vogue I love this fresh, funny, live-out-loud book. -- Jennifer Niven, New York Times bestselling author of All the Bright Places
