William C. Morris Award Winner: Best Young Adult Debut of the Year * National Book Award Longlist

Everybody is talking about Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda!

"A remarkable gift of a novel."—Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle
"I am so in love with this book."—Nina LaCour, author of Hold Still
"Feels timelessly, effortlessly now."—Tim Federle, author of Better Nate Than Ever
"The best kind of love story."—Alex Sanchez, Lambda Award-winning author of Rainbow Boys and Boyfriends with Girlfriends

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.

Editorial Reviews

SLJ
“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.”
Nina LaCour
“I am so in love with this book.”
Andrew Smith
“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.”
Tim Federle
“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.”
Alex Sanchez
“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.”
Entertainment Weekly
“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.”
Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (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.”
VOYA, August 2016 (Vol. 39, No. 3) - Kristin Anderson
Sixteen-year-old high school junior, Simon, is not quite ready to let his friends and family know that he is gay. He has, however, begun an anonymous email relationship with another not-yet-out gay student at his school (Blue) for whom he is beginning to have romantic feelings. When Martin sees this correspondence on Simon's computer screen, he uses the information about Simon's sexuality to blackmail him. Meanwhile, the rest of Simon's close friends are struggling with typical teen problems of their own. The story alternates between Simon and Blue's correspondence and a more traditional narrative. All drama is resolved by the book's end and everyone gets their own happy ending, particularly an officially "out" Simon. What makes this title special is its focus on the sweet, romantic feelings associated with nascent romance so often missing in LGBTQ literature. Books in this category typically focus on the problems of being gay. While Simon is the object of some bullying, this is definitely a romance novel rather than a problem novel. The epistolary portions of the text allow Simon and Blue to deal beautifully with the unfairness of having to declare one's sexuality at all, pointing out that straightness (and, for that matter, whiteness) should not just be an assumed default. The characters are well fleshed out and relatable. Romantic and sweet, give this one to fans of David Levithan's Boy Meets Boy (Knopf, 2003/Voya October 2003). Reviewer: Kristin Anderson; Ages 12 to 18.

★ 02/09/2015
After a “goobery nerd” named Martin discovers Georgia teen Simon Spier’s secret email relationship with a boy who calls himself “Blue,” Martin blackmails Simon into helping him romance Abby, a new girl who has been welcomed into Simon’s lunchroom clique. The threat of being outed by Martin forces Simon to come to terms with his sexuality, and his wise insights—Why do only gay people have to come out? Why is that the default?—add heft to a plot that is both hilarious and heartbreaking. Debut novelist Albertalli writes believably in the voice of a confused, openhearted 16-year-old. The large cast of companionable and well-developed characters contains a heroic drama teacher and Simon’s embarrassing but well-meaning parents. Page-turning tension comes from the anonymous quality of Simon’s emails with Blue, which are interspersed with chapters written in Simon’s first-person voice that chronicle Simon’s increasing frustration with Blue’s reluctance to divulge his identity, as well as the deepening nature of the boys’ relationship. Blue may hesitate, but readers will fall madly in love with Simon. Ages 14–up. Agent: Brooks Sherman, Bent Agency. (Apr.)
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
Kirkus Review
★ 2015-01-20
A gay teen comes out to friends, family and classmates after his secret correspondence with another boy is discovered.Ever since he discovered a post about being gay on his school's unofficial Tumblr, Simon has been corresponding with its author, an anonymous gay classmate who calls himself Blue. Their conversations, which readers see interspersed with prose chapters written from Simon's point of view, are heartfelt, emotionally intimate and increasingly flirtatious—enabled, perhaps, by the fact that neither boy knows the other's identity. Simon is impulsive, full of heart and not always as careful as he should be. When he leaves himself logged into Gmail at the school library, a boy named Martin reads Simon's emails with Blue and uses the threat of outing Simon to insinuate himself into a relationship with one of Simon's female friends. Simon's social landscape is carefully and seemingly effortlessly drawn. Through light and often humorous detail, readers see clearly not only each individual character, but also the complex set of group dynamics at play in Simon's loving family and circle of friends. While Simon is focused on Blue, other characters go on journeys of their own, and the author is careful not only to wrap up Simon's story, but to draw attention to the stories the romance plot might overshadow in lesser hands. Funny, moving and emotionally wise. (Fiction. 12-18)

Reading this was like watching one of those good episodes of Catfish. Where the person is actually the person they say they are. Those are my favorite episodes. There aren't nearly enough of them. Just like there aren't nearly enough of books like this.       Simon doesn't like to let anyone in on his life to avoid making everything a big deal. But suddenly  his email account comes up to someone who doesn't care that Simon is trying to avoid these things. He blackmails him. Help him land someone or he'll expose his secret. The bad thing is, it's not only Simon's secret, it's Blue's (the boy he's been talking to) secret too. Eventually Simon is ready to come out to Blue... And more importantly, the world.       I have to admit... At the beginning I wasn't really pulled all the way in. I don't want to say it, but it seemed like there was too much hype surrounding it. I get it. It's about a very important topic that all teens that may be going through this should read, but it really felt like a regular contemp to me. Maybe because there never really was a "default" to me, I'm not sure. But Simon and Blue are completely cute and their emails are adorable. But at the beginning that's the only reason I wanted to keep reading. The actual story line wasn't the best for me. It moved really slow and I found myself trying to speed read through it just to get to the next emails. But towards the end the story sped up and I fell completely head over heels for their relationship.       As for the characters, I wasn't sure how I felt about Simon's friends and family. His sister didn't know what a dementor was, one of his friends didn't know who Jason Aldean was, and everyone was calling it "the Tumblr," But otherwise all the characters were amazing besides that. One of his friends was Wonder Woman for Halloween.... We know how I felt about that lol But they were fully thought out and everyone played an important role in the story. It made it intimate and close which fit the story.       This story is important in so many ways. Simon shows that it's ok to not be "default." As a diverse person myself, I love that this book is getting so much attention. It may start slow but in the end it will completely suck you in and you won't want to put it down.

About: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is a fiction novel written by Becky Albertalli. It was published on 4/7/15 by Balzer & Bray, 320 pages. The genres are young adult, contemporary, GLBT, romance, and fiction. The author’s new book is called The Upside of Unrequited and will be published 4/11/17. My Experience: I started reading Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda on 1/8/17 and finished it on 1/14/17 at 3:40AM. This book is a great read. I enjoy the humor and the great family dynamic. His friends are great too. His drama teacher Ms. Albright is really cool. The ending is so sweet. I really love how everything comes together at the end. In this book, readers will follow the point of view of Simon Spier, a high school student. His life revolves around his family with parents and two sisters Alice and Nora with his 3 best friends Nick, Abby, and Leah. He has many other friends he sits with at lunch too but he’s not very close with them. When each of his friend’s birthday comes, Leah usually brings in a chocolate cake and in order to have a slice of cake, each person have to wear a party hat. Simon’s family is real fun. They like to watch reality TV shows and play trivia together. I really like the Facebook Trivia. That’s hilarious! I like Simon’s parents. They are really cool parents. I love their parole to being grounded. His sisters are too awesome as well! The plot and the organization of this book is great. The writing is easy to read and at times, I just couldn’t put the book down. It’s full of suspense that I couldn’t guess until it is reveal in the end. I really like the emails between Simon and Blue. Blue is super sweet. I wish there’s more of him in the story. I like reading his emails but I can’t recall if he shows up in the story that much. I like following Simon’s train of thoughts too, especially at the end. It’s really cute! Pro: family, friends, GLBT, humor, suspense, fast paced, Con: More Blue please! I rate it 5 stars! ***Disclaimer: I borrowed this book from my local public library and my opinions are honest. xoxo, Jasmine at www.howusefulitis.wordpress.com

I was so emotionally overwhelmed by the awesomeness that is the conclusion of this amazing book that I had to step away froom it for a bit before being able to write a review. I’m still a bit overwhelmed but I’d like to write this before beginning another book so it’s still fresh so here we go! The characters were so well developed, realistic, and easy to relate to. I absolutely loved seeing the different relationships that developed between each of the characters and helped to better define the characters themselves. I feel like the relationships hinted at greater issues being addressed, but I might be reading too much into it right now. The world is built well enough that I was able to put myself into it, though I’ve only been to the Atlanta area once and remember nothing of the trip. The descriptions given were so vivid without being rambley (totally a word) at all and I felt like I was literally sucked into it. The story was excellent from beginning to end and I didn’t want to put it down, though life forced me to a few times. The main character, Simon, struggled quite a lot during the story so I worried a little about how well the story would conclude, versus simply ending and setting up for a sequel. I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that worry was unnecessary because Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda concludes so completely as to leave room for no questions. I’m still totally swooning over this book. I can’t wait to read more from Becky Albertalli! For this review and more, please visit my blog at vicariousbookworm.wordpress.com

When thinking about how to review this book I have had a pretty big problem with finding the words. Obviously by my star rating I absolutely loved it and I have the hardest time describing why I love books. So here is my best shot. I want to start off by saying that contemporary fiction is not my normal genre to read but there was something about Simon and his story that drew me in. I spent a minute trying to figure out what it was but I think that the thing that made me want to keep reading was how honest Simon was about certain things in the book. He didn't make excuses for himself or his beliefs. On some level, I wish those subjects were more brought up but can understand why they weren't. Another thing that I loved about the book was how clearly I could picture everything happening. I already knew that this is going to be made into a movie but I can see why it is! Everyone needs to give this book a chance!

Simon Spier is gay, and not exactly out yet. The story opens with Simon being confronted by Martin, a classmate who has stumbled upon some email conversations between Simon and his anonymous internet friend, Blue. Martin threatens to out Simon and Blue unless Simon helps him get a date with the girl he likes. And thus, calamity ensues. We get to watch Simon and Blue falling in love (which is one of the most adorable things in the universe) and discovering what kind of person they want to be. Meanwhile, Simon has to deal with Martin (who is seriously annoying) and the chances of his friends and family finding out about his sexuality before he is ready. There are so many things to love about this book. The writing was quirky and funny and lighthearted, despite dealing with sexual identity and the acceptance (or lack thereof) of homosexuality in a high school setting. Important and serious topics were dealt with, but not in a way that made them feel like they were the only aspect of the book. Which is exactly as it should be. The LGBT aspects of the story were mixed right in with everyday things like discussions of Oreos and Simon's favorite singer, homework and drama rehearsal. Yes, Simon vs. is a story about a gay teen. But Simon is so much more than his sexual preference. Simon is....well, he's pretty much awesome. I think literally everyone can find something in Simon that they can relate to. Whether it's his sexual identity or his fear of his mom finding his dirty magazines, his odd sense of humor or his desire to be loved and accepted the way he is. Simon says things throughout the story that most of us have thought as some point in time, no matter our age, gender, race, or sexuality. Simon is in all of us. And he can help us to recognize that no matter who we are, we all just want a little happiness (and maybe some Oreos).

Unexpectedly Fun (Possible Spoilers) I'm not sure what I expected when I decided I needed to read this, but this wasn't it. At the first few paragraphs I was disappointed. It seemed almost juvenile in how it was written. But the more I read, the more my mind changed. This was a fun read; I couldn't put it down. I started it late thinking I would read a few chapters and then go to bed. But it didn't work that way for me. Here I am in the wee hours of the morning reviewing it because I couldn't stop reading until I finished. I felt for Simon and wanted to murder Martin. But I also wanted to punch Simon. At the very least he should have told his best friend that someone was blackmailing him to get to her, but there wouldn't have been much of a story then. The blackmail debacle is what gave us time to get to know Simon and Blue as well as Simon's friends, who were important. I hurt so bad when Martin outed Simon. I wanted to deep fry him, but I think we all knew it was coming. Martin was selfish and childish and could have been a good friend of not for his immaturity. All he cared about was what he wanted and I'm glad that Simon didn't forgive him in the end. Maybe he does somewhere down the line, like well into adulthood, but even that would be too good for him. What Martin did doesn't deserve forgiveness. And as for Blue, I had a feeling all along that it wasn't Cal. For a half second I wondered about Nick, but when they described him having anime heart-eyes for Abby I knew it wasn't an act. In the end I suspected and even hoped for Bram because of the way Simon noticed him. He REALLY noticed him even if it was only in passing and that spoke volumes to me. I'm so glad it was him, and I'm so glad they worked out. If nothing else this book had laughs and teaches the dangers of logging into private accounts on public computers. It should also teach people to think before you act, because there are some things you can't take back that could ruin other's lives. And the guilt is something you live with forever.

Simon vs. the homo sapiens agenda is a amazing book, I couldn't put it down for hours. Its brilliant, its lovable and adorable. I absolutely love it, I recommend it!
BookWorm221 More than 1 year ago
Such a good book! And another one from my list “Why didn’t I read this sooner!!!” I truly loved the story, Simon is a fantastic character and the whole book was beautifully written, all the characters were note worthy, they all had a voice and something so say and I loved that so much! I also loved that Simon came from an open and supportive family, their relationship and they way they are towards Simon was perfect. The book is about Simon who is gay but no one knows it yet, not his friends and not his family, but there is someone that he talks to, Blue. Blue and Simon communicate through email, they know they go to the same school but they don’t know each other’s real name, so for most of the book we along with Simon are trying to discover who Blue is and I gotta say I was pretty sure who he was but the author kept throwing twists and turns at me and sometimes I wondered if I was right. And at the end . . . I was!!! Beautiful Beautiful Book!

Where do I even start.... I just LOVE this book so much. Simon has become one of my favorite main characters of all time. He's so genuine, so unabashedly himself, a guy that I would love to be best friends with. I was constantly rooting for him throughout the whole book and I couldn't put the book down...I read the whole thing in an afternoon and I can't remember the last time I did that. I also loved the other characters in this book, they were diverse and lovely and so real...very real feelings and actions throughout this book. I feel like everyone should be reading this! It felt incredible to get such different perspectives through the different characters and different situations in this book. There is no one point that comes across in this book, but a series of instances that collide together much like real life and shed light on perspectives that should be talked about more often; they should be talked about without noticing they're different, for everyone is different and beautiful in their own way. This would be such a great book for high school students, and really just everyone to read. I feel like I can't really articulate just how much I love this book, I'm sorry for a rather short and sweet review. It's been days since I've read it and I'm still thinking about it. This book has impacted me..much more than I thought it would. Some books you take with you, some characters come alive and this book has definitely done that for me. I loved this one.

This is one of those contemporary novels that will stick with you long after you read it. What we both loved about this book was the fact that it was an LGBTQ novel, and also very much a mystery to discover who "Blue" is. I loved how refreshing the voice was in the novel, especially because the author did a great job of making Simon feel current and real--and especially loveable! The book touches on a lot of topics that aren't often explored in YA, and we're happy to see more LGBT novels hitting shelves in the YA section. We believe this book can really touch a lot of readers' hearts ... and trust me, you'll be shipping Simon + Blue by the end, if you haven't from the start! We finished this book relatively quickly. If you haven't already, go pick it up from your local library or bookstore! Rating: 4 stars -S&S

SIMON VS is so funny and sweet and unputdownable. I LOVED it. I can't wait for Becky's next book! One warning: You'll totally crave OREO cookies after reading!!!
EllenRozek More than 1 year ago
Abso-freaking-lutely adorable. One of those books where I wanted to squish almost every character at least once. Although I, personally, have kind of fallen away from more high school-centric YA, I really appreciated the way school and school activities--like musical rehearsals, and the talent show--added to the story's atmosphere. Other likes: cute, flirty emails, solid yet complicated friend dynamics, Simon's amazing family, his drama teacher who won my heart as soon as she said, "I will make this my hill to die on," all of the perfectly timed pop culture references, AND last but definitely not least, Simon and Blue's relationship. Always. Dislikes: None. Bottom line: Read this. It will make your heart sing. Or tap dance. Or possibly both.

What can I say about a YA novel that gets everything right? I suppose I could say that Becky Albertalli has magically and inexplicably managed to capture how it feels to be an extroverted but closeted teenage boy who falls in love in the most 21st-century way possible (online) and somehow manages to discover how to cope while maintaining his sanity and his sense of humor. Or I could say that the characters in this novel are real and honest and sweet and flawed and infuriatingly genuine. Or I could say that *Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda* brought tears to my eyes—something that very few novels have ever managed to do. But the best thing I can say is this—do yourself a favor and read this novel. It will make you laugh, it will make you smile, and it will make you feel. It will do to you all the things that a work of art is supposed to do.

I loved so many aspects of this story. I think it is a unique premise, that is also very realistic. Simon vs. the Homo Sapien Agenda is hilarious and heartwarming at the same time. Simon and Blue's e-mails are funny and the reader can easily see why they get along so well. Albertalli did a great job of writing interesting side characters. All of Simon's friends were unique and distinguishable, but again, very realistic. I never felt like I was reading a character from a story who was acting a certain way in order to portray the author's message. I can definitely understand why this novel is a Morris Award winner, and can't wait to see what Albertalli cooks up next. According to rumors, it is going to be a companion novel to Simon. :)

This book was so cute! It a love story and a coming out story. It's told in first person by Simon, a high school junior who happens to be gay. He hasn't told anyone yet, except Blue. Simon (aka Jacques) and Blue communicate only via email after finding each other on the school's Tumblr site. In between chapters, Albertalli has included some of their email exchanges. Simon is basically forced to come out because another student sees his email exchange with Blue and threatens to blackmail him if he doesn't introduce him to his friend Abby. That part was a little odd, but it did add to the mystery of Blue and the drama with Simon's friend group. I loved the mystery of finding out who Blue is. I really enjoyed Simon's friends, Leah, Nick, and Abby. Their interactions and drama were so realistic. And Simon's family was so wonderful. His parents were quirky and involved and so unlike most YA parents. I loved the weird family traditions and the sibling love. All of these elements added to the story made it such an enjoyable read. This book is funny and sweet. I blew through it in only two sittings (about 4.5 hours). http://www.momsradius.com/2016/02/book-review-simon-vs-home-sapiens.html

4.5 stars to the new book taking its rightful spot next to Anna and the French Kiss as my go-to happy place book! I loved everything about this story. It felt SO grounded and real and perfectly illustrated how when you're a teenager you don't want the "big" things to actually be a big deal, but the little things can turn into the biggest of deals. You want to be noticed and fly under the radar at the same time. You want nothing more than to tell someone you like them but the thought of it makes you "nauseated." (you'll get that once you read it!) And it's these complexities of teenage emotions that the author has expressed so well. Simon is so relatable and delightfully quirky, you can't help but love his voice. And seeing the world through his eyes will leave you craving some Oreos and making your own "Great Depression" playlist. Read this book and let it warm your soul.

The most important part (I'm kidding)(but just maybe) is the romance, GUYS IT WAS SO CUTE AND GAWD!!! Simon and "Blue" start exchanging e-mails but one doesn't know the identity of the other, but they know they are on the same year and go to the same high school, their e-mail exchanges WERE SO FREAKING CUTE, like seriously they talk about how cute the other is and they have deep thoughtful conversations about being gay and how to come out and there is even some sexy times (YESSSSS!!!). I just, it wasn't even halfway through the book and I was already in love with Blue myself and in love with Blue & Simon and just it was fluffy and adorable and I need more romances like this in my life. Other very important part of the story is Simon's family, they are just so... Crazy really, his father think he is a hipster, his mom is a psychologist that wants to know every single thing that changes on her three kids, and the two sisters Nora who is very closed on herself and Alice who is away for college. I loved how there was a lot of participation of the family on the story, there was times where they would watch things and discussed watched things and times were the parents would want to have *serious* talks and it was just so normal and yeah, every family is a little bit all over the place and crazy and it was perfect their presence in the story and see how important they are for Simon. His friends, Abby, Leah and Nick too are very important to Simon and to his coming out, I specially loved a scene by the end with Simon and Leah, it was just so touching and I could relate so much to Leah, letting someone new enter a group can be tricky and it's easy to feel left out. Okay, I guess I had some things to talk about this books, and the last thing you have to know about this is that Simon rocks, he is sort of nerd-y and a music geek and a drama geek and obsessed with oreos and really adorable and relatable and you probably you will want to be friends with him. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is a *very important* book that needs to be read by like everyone because it tells really important things about coming out and being part of a minoria and it also has amazing characters and adorable romance. Basically is the perfect fluffy for me.
