Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda Becky Albertalli Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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!

User reviews about this book

  • Amazing

    By King Griffington
    I own this book, but needed to say how AWESOME this book is, it is perfect for the gay or the straight, Albertalli really nails the essence of romance and attraction in this book! I have probably read and re-read this book about 30 times (and counting)! That is how AWESOME it is! It is worth the price tag, I just that Nick Robinson (the actor who plays Simon Speir (most likely misspelled) or the actor who plays Bram narrate this in AudioBook, that would make it an eleven of a book! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 🏳️‍🌈 😍 🥳🤩👍👍👍
  • Perfect

    By Pin1o Beans
    The reason I came out. The reason I will be more me than I ever will be. The reason I decided to look for love even though it’s difficult. A perfect depiction of the struggles of teenage life and coming out. This book made me fall in love with every word written, and I could not put it down. This book is a must read for everyone. Parents should read it, especially those trying to process the fact that their child is lgbt+. Nobody should ignore the power this book has. It teaches people to accept and love and support people who are not what everyone wants them to be. Simply put: Sensational 🏳️‍🌈

    Drunk Simon is the best Simon. Also, am I the only one who is offended by how the movie doesn’t have my Elliot Smith?
  • Very good Romance
