Recensioner

A joyous triumph of YA literature, with a cast of characters that leap off the page with life and wit. This is a delightful and much needed book! Simon will steal your heart and make you remember what it was like to be a teenager, and that love comes in many forms.

Imogen's always been the straight ally of her school's Pride group, doing the work to educate herself and be respectful and a good friend. While visiting her best friend Lili for the weekend at the college she will soon be attending, Imogen catches big feelings for Tessa, one of Lili's pack of cool queer friends -- and it seems like the feelings might be mutual. What does this mean for Imogen's identity? What will it mean for her friendships, both existing and new?

One of the things Albertalli does best is creating solid friend groups with great dialogue and humor, and she really shines with this book as Imogen interacts with both her established friend group and Lili's college group. She also does a great job of looking at different aspects of identity and how people discover new facets of themselves. As a result, Imogen is really, really in her own head for a lot of the book, and her constant questions and anxieties might be exhausting for some readers. I wasn't bothered by it, because I could see myself in the way Imogen processes interactions and new information. If you've enjoyed Albertalli's other works, you'll probably like this one -- and if you haven't read any of her books, this is a standalone, so it's a good place to start (though I am hoping for more books from this set of characters in the future)!… (mer)

I really love this book. Emotionally invest in it, but that ending, although not sad, it still broke my heart.

Sorry but I can't feel happy knowing they've hurt people. I WAS LOOKING FORWARD to this book but I feel so bad for their other partners
