Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But if an email falls into the incorrect hands, his secret is vulnerable to being thrust into the spotlight. Now change-averse Simon has to have the opportunity to step out of his comfort zone before he is pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with essentially the most confusing, adorable guy he is never met.
Incredibly funny and poignant, this twenty-first-century coming-of-age, coming out story—wrapped in a geek romance—is a knockout of a debut novel by Becky Albertalli.
