Y'all, I absolutely DEVOURED this book. I LOVED the return to Simon's world and how real Leah is. She felt perfect for a movie or even an audiobook; her voice and feelings make her real and relatable. I love how she is trying to find herself as well as coming to terms with her sexual identity. My favorite part of Leah is how she repeats "I love my body.." her body positivity was a breath of fresh air in our body negative world.
If you coudn't already tell, Simon's Spier's best friend, Leah, got her won book, in which she has to navigate her best friend's breakup while falling for the girl that her best friend just broke up with meanwhile worrying about her upcoming graduation and the usual college applicatio process anxiety. Her mom is dating again, so add that to the pile of feels that Leah is dealing with.
I loved every second of this book. Readers should be aware though that Leah is a potty-mouth and if you didn't like Katherine Langford playing her in Love, Simon, then you won't like her in this because she is a wonderful depicition of Leah.
Today's vlog is super awesome because it features TWO books:
1. The Upside of Unrequited by Becky ALbertalli, and
2. Bruja Born by Zoraida Cordova. (Bruja Born was so awesome that I had to review it twice. (Read the blog review here.)
