Now a major motion picture from Twentieth Century Fox: Love, Simon

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 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.

    I think this book is one of the best books I think I have ever heard. It had a nice balance of love life and family.

    Honestly, just a good read. Hits a lot of true points in how our society and culture handles teenagers and the pressure we put on them to be a certain way. There were a lot of important moments in this book that puts things in perspective.

    I had no idea what to expect. My friend told I should read it and I am so glad I did! One of the most relatable books I’ve listened to! The book was well written and Michael Crouch’s narration was fantastic! The second I finished I ordered a hard copy of the book...I’m not even kidding! Everyone should read this book! I can’t wait for the film adaptation!

    This book is so sweet and familiar. The narrator really relays the subtle emotions. I cried a few times and had flashbacks of such familiar feelings. I couldn't stop listening.
