    Staff Reviews

    Cyber pen-pals, blackmail, theater, friendship, and Oreos—what more do you need in a book!? There's also some romance, drama (both on and off the stage) as well as Simon's witty and hilarious narrative. So what do you do when you're blackmailed into being someone's wingman while trying to figure out your sexuality as well as the identity of your cyber-crush? I have no clue what I'd do; Simon does a pretty bang-up job given the circumstances. (Crystal)

    "A remarkable gift of a novel."--Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle

    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.
