"Funny, moving and emotionally wise."--Kirkus Reviews
"Debut novelist Albertalli writes believably in the voice of a confused, openhearted 16-year-old. Readers will fall madly in love with Simon."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Though there are realistic moments of tension, the dominant sentiment here is the delicious excitement of finding your best self in the eyes of someone else; not since Levithan's Boy Meets Boy have readers been treated to such a happy sigh of a book about two boys falling in love."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
