Is there something wrong with it? Because everyone on the Internet loved this book & I'm sitting here like... mehhh.
Story introduces us to a sixteen-year-old Simon Spier who even though is not openly gay, is completely comfortable with it and just haven't found the right opportunity to announce it to his friends and family. Although emailing with a mysterious boy and getting more flirty is intriguing, he doesn't want anyone to find out. So when his classmate "blackmails" him into hanging out with one of his friends, he wouldn't want the emails getting out.
Let's stop right there..
Simon is great. Shy and funny and lovable character with great family and friends, he's into that "lovey-dovey" romance that many and MANY girls drool over.. But it was just not for me. at all...
I actually got depressed while reading this book. Yup, that's how much I wanted to DNF it but had to finish because of the buzz it's been getting. Damn book buzz and it's incredible appeal to my visual senses.
So yes, let's just mark that into it's-not-you-it's-me category so I can go be happy again.
