"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."--Entertainment Weekly
"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."--Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle
"Funny, moving and emotionally wise."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"I am so in love with this book."--Nina LaCour, author of Hold Still

"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."--Tim Federle, author of Better Nate than Ever
"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."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
"I love you, SIMON. I LOVE YOU! And I love this fresh, funny, live-out-loud book."--Jennifer Niven, bestselling author of All the Bright Places

The beloved, award-winning novel is now a major motion picture starring 13 Reasons Why's Katherine Langford and Everything, Everything's Nick Robinson.
Straight people should have to come out too. And the more awkward it is, the better.
Simon Spier is sixteen and trying to work out who he is - and what he's looking for.
But when one of his emails to the very distracting Blue falls into the wrong hands, things get all kinds of complicated.
Because, for Simon, falling for Blue is a big deal ...
It's a holy freaking huge awesome deal.
Praise for Love, Simon:
'Worthy of Fault in Our Stars-level obsession.' Entertainment Weekly
