“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, 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.”

OH MY GOD. THIS BOOK!!! I actually cannot explain how much I loved this book. It just gave me so many feels. I just loved everything about it. I loved the way it was told for a start. It is told in a mix of emails and Simon’s POV which made it really easy to read. I loved the mystery behind who blue was without finding the whole story too cheesy.
I also loved the friendships within the story. I found Leah, Nick and Abby indiring and loved their individual bonds with Simon. I especially loved Leah and Simon’s friendship. I also loved seeing the dynamics between Simon and his family and the fact that even though his family were cool with his sexuality he still had a hard time telling them. I just went through so many emotions reading this book, I can’t even begin to explain. I couldn’t have even guessed the ending. I really can’t wait to read the sequel, Leah on the offbeat and I’m so desperate to see Love, Simon now too!
