Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
“I remember exactly how it felt to see that first message from him in my in-box. It was a little bit surreal. He wanted to know about me. For the next few days at school after that, it felt like I was a character in a movie. I could almost imagine a close-up of my face, projected wide-screen.
It’s strange, because in reality, I’m not the leading guy. Maybe I’m the best friend.
I guess I didn’t reall think of myself as interesting until I was interesting to Blue.”
It’s rare that an author gets put on my “absolute favorite writers of all time.” After only two books, but apparently Becky Albertalli gets that honor. I love Simon vs, love Upside, and I’m sure I’ll love anything she ever writes.
