Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda: Spoiler Free Review

Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda: Spoiler Free Review

Hi Sprinkles!  What’s up?  Today I am going to do a book review but before that, we must address an issue… I am literally the worst person at updating so I have to do the only thing I know how to do to fix this… make an update date!  Or a posting date because update date sounds weird, too many dates.  The posting date will be…you know what I like update date better.  So the update date will be dum dum da da dum da duuuummmmmmm THURSDAY!  So come to my site every Thursday for a new book review, this does not mean I won’t update other days or other posts.  This just means that every Thursday there will be a book review.  Now that all the official stuff is out of the way, the book I will be reviewing today is Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by the wonderful Becky Albertalli.  This book has quickly become one of the best books I’ve read this year and one of my favorite books of all time.  Now on to the review I give this book a 96% or a five out of five stars.  The plot was great and the character was extremely relatable.  This novel has many LGBTQ + characters and also encompasses many characters from different nationalities.  I can’t speak of how these characters are represented as I do not identify with most of these qualities.  I also loved the family dynamic in this book.  All I can say is that I loved the book and I highly recommend if you are someone that likes cutesy love stories and coming of age novels. If you don’t then pick it up anyway because I am usually not one for these either but this one really got to me in the sense that I related and loved it.  Also, in other exciting news, this book is being turned into a movie so you should read it before the movie comes out.  The cast looks very promising, I think they’re going to do a really good job with it.  I’m not going to go into this too much as I want to make a separate post about the movie and the teaser they released on Halloween.  Look out for that post!

Summary:  Simon Spier is a not-so-openly gay 16-year-old, high school junior.  When emails fall into the wrong hands Simon must become the wingman to the junior class clown: Martin Addison.  If Simon doesn’t do this his sexual identity will become the business of the whole school.  An even worse secret about Blue, the pen name Simon has been-mailing, will be compromised.

Age: 14+

Genre:  Coming of age

Disclaimer:  This wonderful book, characters, and plot line being to the awesome Becky Albertalli

This is the end of the my review of Simon vs. please tell me your thoughts and feelings, completely spoiler free please.  A spoiler filled review will be coming soon and a thoughts and feeling post about what we know of the movie will also happen eventually.  That’s all for today.

Stay sweet,

Scoop Girl
