Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli is about a junior named Simon who is struggling with is sexual identity and also just trying to survive high school. When one of his personal emails falls into the hands of the class-clown, Martin, the blackmailing begins. Not only does he now need to be Martin’s wingman, but if he doesn’t, then the identity of the boy, Blue, who he has been sending flirty emails to will be revealed. Now Simon has to step out of his comfort zone to figure this mess out.
This is a book that has been on my TBR for so long! I always really like stories that seem like there is going to be huge character development, and this story totally fits that mold. Also, I feel that I need to come out of my comfort zone more often, so this seems like a good read for me. Another reason I am so excited for this book to come out is that on Jen’s Blog there was an author’s talk with Becky Albertalli about christmas and the holiday season that I really enjoyed. In the post she talked about about this book (WAY TO PSYCH ME UP MORE).
