About the Book:

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.

Book Review(mini review):

I LOVE this book so much and Simon is a darling, finished reading this in a day.

This book was a gift from a friend during Christmas.
The praise that the book had received and the overwhelming love that was being showered on the book actually made me read the book.

After finishing it i did the much obvious thing, Thanked Becky Albertalli for writing the book and introducing us to the very charming person that Simon is. This book is now officially into the list of one of my favorite novels.
During the parts where Simon tries to guess the actual identity of Blue, I was also googling from the clues that Simon had gathered. :D

The Book is hilarious and all other great things, Also i love Simon's Parents. ;)

They are just adorable, and i love his friends and Simon as well.

Okay rant over!!

Eagerly waiting for the movie.

Rating: 4.5/5*
