Love, Simon (Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda) - Hardcover Special Edition


Product Description

Now a major motion picture ''Love, Simon'', starring Nick Robinson, is the charming, feel-good gay hit based on the book, ''Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda''

This special edition of ''Love, Simon'' by award-winning author Becky Albertalli includes new Simon and Blue emails, a behind-the-scenes scrapbook from the ''Love, Simon'' movie set, and Becky Albertalli in conversation with fellow authors Adam Silvera and Angie Thomas.

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 with, will be jeopardized.

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.

Reviewed and Recommended by Graeme Aitken:

"This award-winning YA novel is now a major Hollywood feature film but it’s easy to see why this book attracted their interest in the first place. It’s a classic mystery that slowly turns into a secret admirer enigma - someone likes me, but I don’t know who it is! Simon discovers that there is another gay teen at his school and the two boys communicate by email, slowly opening up to each other. And as they do, gradually something more intimate begins to grow between them. But their anonymous situation is complicated by the fact that both boys are in the closet, and that Simon is being blackmailed by a classmate who has inadvertently stumbled upon his secret. The narrative’s suspense is not only restricted to the identity of who Simon’s admirer (Blue) is, but also whether Simon will come out to friends and family and whether Blue will do the same. It’s a clever inventive plot and narrative, and the supporting cast of characters (Simon’s friends and family) are exceptionally well-developed and observed. But the blackmail is also an ingenious device that complicates the situation and raises the stakes for Simon and Blue."
