Nineteen-year-old Simon and his boyfriend navigate their first year of college while struggling to maintain their newly long-distance relationship.
In this epistolary novella, Simon Spier is at it again—but now, he’s at Haverford College, and Blue, his boyfriend of two years, is in New York City. As they settle into their new college lives, Simon and Blue, along with Leah, Nick, Abby, Garrett, and Taylor, keep in touch via email in endearing, occasionally gossipy group threads and poignant private conversations. Infused with Albertalli’s signature humor and heart and arranged chronologically (complete with time stamps), topics range from roommates, parties, and classes to identity, agency, and the future. New readers beware: Practically every page contains a spoiler for the preceding novels, including Blue’s name and several other characters’ queer identities. Unfortunately, the individual characters’ voices at times do not feel distinct from one another; nevertheless, fans of the Simonverse will laugh, cry, and swoon over the hilarious and tender exchanges between their favorite characters. The story affirms long-term, long-distance love and friendship, addressing the complicated feelings that come from navigating new environments. Race is never mentioned in this installment; readers of previous books will be aware that the characters are White and Black.
