Description

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda Now a major motion picture: Love, Simon, starring Nick Robinson and Katherine Langford! This edition includes new Simon and Blue emails, a behind-the-scenes scrapbook from the Love, Simon movie set, and Becky Albertalli in conversation with fellow authors Adam Silvera and Angie Thomas.

William C. Morris Award Winner: Best Young Adult Debut of the Year * National Book Award Longlist

"A remarkable gift of a novel."—Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle

"I am so in love with this book."—Nina LaCour, author of Hold Still

"Feels timelessly, effortlessly now."—Tim Federle, author of Better Nate Than Ever

"The best kind of love story."—Alex Sanchez, Lambda Award-winning author of Rainbow Boys and Boyfriends with Girlfriends

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he's pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he's never met.

Incredibly funny and poignant, this twenty-first-century coming-of-age, coming out story—wrapped in a geek romance—is a knockout of a debut novel by Becky Albertalli.

And don't miss Becky Albertalli's The Upside of Unrequited or Leah on the Offbeat!

    Becky Albertali’s book is masterpiece. It shows us how is to grow up as a gay closed teen, while giving us a love story that is so universal that everyone can relate. It should be required reading in school.

    This book is amazing and whether you like it or not, there are going to be gay people out there. It’s who we are. It’s not a bad thing, as someone who rated this book 1 Star put it, rather, a good thing. This world needs a little bit more diversity, so we are here just to do that. We know some people believe gay=bad, but that isn’t true. Now onto the book. The book was absolutely beautiful and amazing, bringing in a quality story and characters so deep I can imagine them sitting next to me. It is a work of art. This book helped me come out to my family and friends, and I hope it will do the same for you, even if it helps you be more sure and secure in your straightness. The gay community loves all. Literally.

    So I have the actual book but I wanted to post my opinion somewhere??? But like this book is so amazing. Anyone who is a homophobe shouldn’t read it, but this book is freaking amazing. I mean. I encourage all of you to read this. Anyone who might want to buy the book should freaking buy it. I haven’t seen the movie but I bet the book is better than the movie. Anyways that’s my opinion. Buyyyyyy iitttt

    Best book I’ve read in a while, I can’t remember ever being so excited to read and really connect with the characters in this book, especially Simon even though I’m not homosexual, but aromantic and asexual. This book made me feel proud to be here and queer, I wish there were more books like this one where more teenagers my age can relate to it in a positive and funny way. Amazing book with a really good love story. Can’t wait for Leah and the Off Beat!!

    One the best books I have read in a long time. I can’t praise it enough. Coming from the Atlanta suburbs this book describes my life. I feel like I could go to school tomorrow and meet these characters and if I wasn’t already out, reading this book would definitely inspire me to “open the closet door.”

    I LOVE this book. I decided to read it before I went to go see Love Simon. It’s amazing that a book/movie about the lgbt+ community can become so popular. This book is hilarious, is exacting, and has a really adorable romance story. I literally could not put it down I would totally recommend it.
