I enjoyed the previous volume in this series, so I looked forward to this second volume of Steady Beat. Unfortunately, it can't live up to the promise of the first book. If I had to pick a word to describe the story, I'd say it was preachy in the extreme. The lesson of tolerance is crammed down the reader's throat as Leah's new friend reveals that he has two fathers, how convenient!

Rivkah also introduced a new device in which handwritten "journal" entries written by Leah are used to break up the chapters. They add nothing to the story, since it's usually just Leah rambling about...nothing. Nothing related to the main story, just random trivia about something that annoyed her or things she likes or whatever. Totally useless.

The story takes its sweet time to move along, and ends on a cliffhanger...which is really too bad, seeing as Tokyopop decided to stop printing the book after this volume. They "published" the third book online, but it's just not the same. ( )

The art is strong, professional, and beautiful. There’s much more of a sense of place in this volume, whether it’s the use of a particular Austin, Texas, location or Leah’s Texas flag swimsuit. The open, airy look helps keep the serious story entertaining and thought-provoking instead of depressing.
