You've seen Leah in the groundbreaking major motion picture Love Simon (based on the amazing Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda).

Now it's her turn to take centre stage.

--------

When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat- but real life isn't always so rhythmic.

The only child of a single mum, her life is less privileged than her friends.

Her mum knows she's bisexual, but Leah hasn't mustered the courage to tell her friends.

Not even her openly gay BFF, Simon.

Prom and college are on the horizon, and tensions are running high.

Can Leah still strike the right note, when the people she loves are fighting?

And how can she cope knowing that she might love one of her friends more than she ever intended?
