Becky Albertalli’s books

I’d been told a long time ago to read Becky Albetalli’s book, Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda. I’m not sure why, but I never got around to reading it. For some reason, it didn’t appeal to me. But last December, the bookstagrammers of India decided to do a Harry Potter and Simon read-a-thon in…
