Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda book review

…the plot centers on a high school junior named Simon whose sexual-orientation secret falls into the hands of the class clown. The latter blackmails the teen into playing cupid and while that unfolds, Simon tries to navigate a way that will let him come out to his friends and family, not pushed out.

So this book was recommended by a close friend of mine and I tend to trust her recommendations a bit. And this book, well, here’s the thing. It’s a good book, spanning some weirdly not weird gay moments. That might be more on the personal side though. Another thing which I think is mostly attuned to other factions of novels is the plot twist, and this one kinda didn’t really deliver. I mean, the boy on the other end of the emails was a surprise, but not one of those Oh-My-God-I-didn’t-see-that-coming kinda surprises. It was a good book overall, not too long, not too short either. You have your run-of-the-mill fillers, but they’re not too in-your-face. This is such a hyphenated review. I really think with this you could knock some hours off your yearly reading goal – which you probably should have by now.
Rating: Probably won’t knock your socks off. That’s not to say it’s a bad book by any means. But from my point of view – which overly favors sci-fi and fantasy – it didn’t quite reach there.

Want me to review one of your favorite books? Leave a comment below and it just might be the one I review. Until next time though, have fun reading!
