This book has been on my to-read list for the longest time, but I never managed to find it in the library-until TODAY! I was browsing the award winner shelves for teens and I found this blessed book! Honestly the whole time I was reading this book I felt like I was floating in a marshmallow-ey rainbow cloud of happiness. Seriously. 🙂 It left me with the hugest and most awesome-est smile plastered on my face. I couldn’t stop my fingers from flipping the crisp pages of this book. So, without further ado……let’s get on topic and actually talk about the book. So, a guy named Simon. That’s the main character, in case you hadn’t realized yet. 😛 Simon is gay. But not openly-yet. He’s been talking with a guy named Blue by email. He has no idea who Blue really is, but as their email get more flirtatious by the second, he’s getting desperate. But when his emails fall into wrong hands, Martin, the class clown, is blackmailing Simon into being his wingman-or else Simon’s sexuality and his emails to Blue will be revealed to the whole school. Things have gone even more complicated than they were before he found out he was gay. And obviously, we all know that’s a big no-no.
Simon is a hilarious character and I loved reading through his perspective. Honestly, reading this book was like drinking hot chocolate on a cold but not too-cold winter, or like watching the sunset on a warm July night at the beach. In other words, this book left me with a giddy feeling through the whole span of the book-kind of like I drank a tad to much coffee. 🙂
