APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Becky Albertalli’s sweet, candid, and funny teen love story is told through the email correspondence and internal musings of 16-year-old Simon Spier. Simon has a thing for Oreos and Elliott Smith songs… and has a crush on a kid he’s never met. We definitely related to this YA novel’s depiction of classic high school turmoil: underage drinking, making out and getting grounded. Simply put, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is a joy, and we’re happy it’s been made into a movie (Love, Simon).
After a "goobery nerd" named Martin discovers Georgia teen Simon Spier's secret email relationship with a boy who calls himself "Blue," Martin blackmails Simon into helping him romance Abby, a new girl who has been welcomed into Simon's lunchroom clique. The threat of being outed by Martin forces Simon to come to terms with his sexuality, and his wise insights Why do only gay people have to come out? Why is that the default? add heft to a plot that is both hilarious and heartbreaking. Debut novelist Albertalli writes believably in the voice of a confused, openhearted 16-year-old. The large cast of companionable and well-developed characters contains a heroic drama teacher and Simon's embarrassing but well-meaning parents. Page-turning tension comes from the anonymous quality of Simon's emails with Blue, which are interspersed with chapters written in Simon's first-person voice that chronicle Simon's increasing frustration with Blue's reluctance to divulge his identity, as well as the deepening nature of the boys' relationship. Blue may hesitate, but readers will fall madly in love with Simon. Ages 14 up.
