SEVEN BOOKS SIMON FROM SIMON VS. THE HOMO SAPIENS AGENDA WOULD LOVE (AND WHY!)
by Becky Albertalli
Dear Becky Albertalli and Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda,
I didn’t know all that much about this book until Jen professed her love for the book when she got a copy. And oh boy, when I saw this book cover, my interest level shot up. And guess what happened when I read this synopsis?
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.Goodreads
