Amelia Semple, Contributor

Quick Recap: 

Closeted Simon prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, he gets blackmailed. If he doesn’t play wingman for the class clown, Martin or his sexual identity will become everybody’s business. And the identity of Blue, his secret admirer, will be jeopardized. Will Simon be able to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out?


Review (Spoilers will continue..) ☆☆☆☆☆:

One thing that I really enjoyed that this was a different romance story than what people are used to. This was my first LGBTQ read, and the message behind the story. I know a couple of people who had to go through this and I didn’t really understand what they went through until I read this book.

I also thought the love story between Bram and Simon. It was written- so perfectly. I also thought it was so cute that they met through being pen-pals, I actually envy him a bit. I also think Bram is such a perfect person, he’s quiet and sensitive. I think he is just the perfect boyfriend.

I also loved the fact that they mentioned about musicals Cause Shady Creek was doing Oliver! And I thought that was cool.
