Funny, moving and emotionally wise. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
Debut novelist Albertalli writes believably in the voice of a confused, openhearted 16-year-old. Readers will fall madly in love with Simon. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
Though there are realistic moments of tension, the dominant sentiment here is the delicious excitement of finding your best self in the eyes of someone else; not since Levithan s Boy Meets Boy have readers been treated to such a happy sigh of a book about two boys falling in love. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)"
Rife with realistic, high school relationships and drama, with a laugh or two at every turn, this is a coming-of-age, coming-out, and defying-the-odds story with which many teens will identify. --SLJ"
I am so in love with this book. --Nina LaCour, author of Hold Still"
Delightfully funny and at times heart-wrenching. Readers will ache for Simon s awkwardness, cheer his small triumphs, but, most of all, fall in love with this kid and with this remarkable gift of a novel. --Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle"
Are we absolutely certain that Becky Albertalli didn t just steal the diary of a hilariously observant teenage boy? Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is a pitch-perfect triumph of wit and wordplay that feels timelessly, effortlessly now. --Tim Federle, author of Better Nate than Ever"
Becky Albertalli has written the best kind of love story: the kind in which you fall in love with the characters as they fall in love with each other. --Alex Sanchez, Lambda Award-winning author of Rainbow Boys and Boyfriends with Girlfriends"
