Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli Review

Title: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda 
Series: None
Author:Becky Albertalli 
Date Published: April 7th 2015

'The love child of John Green and Rainbow Rowell' Teen Vogue
Straight people should have to come out too. And the more awkward it is, the better.
Simon Spier is sixteen and trying to work out who he is - and what he's looking for. 
But when one of his emails to the very distracting Blue falls into the wrong hands, things get all kinds of complicated.
Because, for Simon, falling for Blue is a big deal . . .
It's a holy freaking huge awesome deal.

I honestly didn't think I would enjoy this much as I did, Simon made it easy for me to like him, he felt so real to me all his thoughts, doubts, fears and emotions in general were so well written, but not in a pretentious way. He proves that emails can woo someone with emails and correct grammar.

The thing that most amazed me overall was how genuine, not only Simon but all the other aspects like family relationships, friends and the fact that there are people that are willing to hurt you.

The book is will make you crave Oreos
