Summary

A bisexual girl who gives anonymous love advice to her school friends is hired by the hot new kid to help him get his ex back. Leah on the Offbeat meets To All the Boys I've Loved Before - the new queer YA rom-com from Sophie Gonzales.

Her advice, spot on. Her love life, way off.

Darcy Phillips:

Can give you the solution to any of your relationship woes - for a fee.

Uses her power for good. Most of the time.

Really cannot stand the new Australian jock at school, Alexander Brougham.

Has maybe not the best judgement when it comes to her best friend, Brooke...who is in love with someone else.

Does not appreciate being blackmailed

But when Brougham catches Darcy in the act of collecting letters from locker 89 - out of which she's been running her questionably legal, anonymous relationship advice service - that's exactly what happens. In exchange for keeping her secret, Darcy begrudgingly agrees to become his personal dating coach. The goal? To help him win his ex-girlfriend back. 

Darcy has good reason to keep her identity secret. If word gets out that she's behind the locker, some things she's not proud of will come to light, and there's a good chance Brooke will never speak to her again. 

Okay, so all she has to do is help an entitled, bratty, (annoyingly hot) guy win over a girl who's already fallen for him once? What could possibly go wrong?

Perfect as advertised

I loved the representation in this book - it is so considerate to lgbtq+ characters and themes but also on consent and healthy relationships both romantically and platonically. As much as I enjoyed this book and laughed out loud almost every chapter, I also learn alot too!
