‘The wonderful thing about Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is that it’s quirky and endearing, but to the point where it still feels real.’ – The Guardian
Meet Simon: cynical, funny, insecure, full of obsessions, hopes and dreams like every other 17 year old. But Simon also has a big, glowing secret, and that secret is going to get out if class clown Martin doesn’t get what he wants.
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is the YA phenomenon that swept North America and is now making waves here. Big-hearted and brimming with authenticity, Becky Albertalli’s debut takes on one boy’s hesitant path toward coming out as gay and creates a story filled with humour and very real drama. From the wild eccentricities of his family to the growing feelings between Simon and the mysterious, online figure of Blue, you’ll find yourself rooting for one of the great new heroes of contemporary YA fiction.
Now filmed as the indie smash-hit Love, Simon, Becky Albertalli fuses all the best of John Green and Rainbow Rowell and delivers something really unique, capturing all the hilarity and agony that teenage friendship and love can bring. Recommended.
