Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—Simon Speir, high school junior, walks away from his computer at school for just a moment, and that is when his biggest secret is discovered. He has been emailing a boy in his grade anonymously ever since a poetic waxing on his high school's gossip Tumblr caught his eye, and now Martin Addison has taken a screenshot and has a powerful way to blackmail Simon into getting his friend, Abby, to date him. Although it is filled with trendy pop-culture and digital-age references (Tumblr, Justin Beiber, The Bachelor, etc.) that may not stand the test of time, the message will resonate. 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. With a very tidy, feel-good ending, the book will appeal to readers who enjoyed Tim Federle's Better Nate Than Ever (2013) and Five, Six, Seve, Nate! (2014, both S. & S.) and will find a familiar, slightly more mature home with Simon.—Brittany Staszak, St. Charles Public Library, IL

Review

Albertalli paints a stunningly three-dimensional, cliche-free world for Simon that bursts with unforgettable characters. Savor it, because you ll read it for the first time only once. Worthy of Fault in Our Stars-level obsession. --Entertainment Weekly"

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"
