This book is not just c-u-t-e but it is also very r-e-a-l.
I am loving how it talks about the modern day approach of kids (or teens) and adults towards the LGBTQ+ community.
It highlights the main character’s (Simon) journey of coming out.
Coming out will never be easy to more than half of the LGBTQ+ community–if not all–but, would it be fair to let the straight people come out.. As straight as well? LOL.
Well, the real deal for me here is people can’t and should never dictate when you are ready to come out–or heck if you ever need to.
Only you can decide when, where and how. Respect is what you call it and people should know that. But then again, some people will never understand. Let them be. If you accept yourself for who you are, then you are all good.
This book will make you laugh, cry and be giddy on the inside. I highly recommend everybody to read it–straight or not.
As for me, I will definitely watch the movie very soon! Hoping that the directors will surpass the feels the book gave me ♡
