Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Published April 7th 2015 by Balzer + Bray
Genres:  Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance, GLBT


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 Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.

With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. 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.

My Thoughts

This was a super cute book.  I loved Simon and I loved Blue.  I really liked the mystery of finding out who Blue was.  I seriously didn't know who Blue was until like almost the end.  I kind of had a idea, but I was totally wrong.  I'm really glad who Blue actually was, him a Simon make the cutest couple ever.  

I also liked when Simon came out to his family, his family was very supportive.  Some families can be so discouraging and rude just because you are gay and they disown you.  I just can't believe people can do that.  Who cares who you love, everybody should be able to love whoever they want to.  

Now on to Martin, I do not like him at all.  He totally blackmailed Simon.  Told the whole freaking school that he was gay.  That is Simon's story to tell not Martin's.  If Simon isn't ready to come out then he should be able to wait as long as he wants.  

I absolutely recommend this book it is a great book about first loves and coming out.
