Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens by Becky Albertalli

19547856Simon is a sixteen year old boy who is gay but he is not ready to tell anyone. He befriends another boy on anonymous Tumblr page who happens to go to his school and is gay also. Blue and Simon get to know each other through emails back and forth. One day though Simon forgets to long out of a computer in the library of school and other classmate, Martin finds his emails to Blue. Martin blackmails Simon and threatens to tell the whole school unless Simon helps Martin date his good friend Abby. The story continues on and is wrapped around the mystery of who Blue is. Martin does eventually out Simon the school which gives him and Blue the courage to come out. This a great story about being true to yourself. I would recommend.
