She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. 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.
