9780062348685: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

"The love child of John Green and Rainbow Rowell." (Teen Vogue). Straight people should have to come out too. And the more awkward it is, the better. Simon Spier is sixteen and trying to work out who he is - and what he's looking for. But when one of his emails to the very distracting Blue falls into the wrong hands, things get all kinds of complicated. Because, for Simon, falling for Blue is a big deal...It's a holy freaking huge awesome deal. Praise for Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda: "I love you, Simon. I love you! And I love this fresh, funny, live-out-loud book." (Jennifer Niven, New York Times bestselling author of All the Bright Places). "A remarkable gift of a novel." (Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle). "Both hilarious and heartbreaking...Readers will fall madly in love with Simon." (Publishers Weekly (starred review)). "A brilliant beacon of optimism and cuteness for LGBTQA+ youth in a genre often bogged down with tragedy and heartbreak. Books like Simon do change people's lives." (Waterstones Darlington Bookseller). "A wonderfully charismatic story about coming-of-age and coming out." (Bookseller). "Funny, moving and emotionally wise." (Kirkus Reviews (starred)). "It made me laugh, cry and all the fifty shades of emotions I can think of right now. There is literally no adjectives that would be suffice to describe how brilliant this book is." (Goodreads (5 star review)). "I think I just felt my heart explode in my chest." (Goodreads (5 star review)). "One of the most electric, authentic characters I've ever read...I love this book. Love it. Five freaking stars." (Goodreads (5 Stars)). About the author: Becky Albertalli is a clinical psychologist who has had the privilege of conducting therapy with dozens of smart, weird, irresistible teenagers. She also served for seven years as co-leader of a support group for gender-nonconforming children in Washington, DC. Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda is her first novel.

Product Description:

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

Everybody is talking about Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda!

"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.

From the Back Cover:

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 Simon is actually being blackmailed: If he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing with, will be jeopardized.

With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. 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.
