Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda
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.
