Simon has a secret crush; it is so secret he can’t even share it with his amazing friends his super supportive family or his adoring little sister. He can’t share it because no one knows what he knows about himself, no one, even all his super supportive family and friends, no one but Blue. He met Blue online and they write each other every day. Blue is living a secret life too, so on top of being cool and liking the same kinds of music and enjoying talking about the same topics, Blue also gets Simon’s predicament. Simon is so worried about losing the only person that really understands him fully that he puts his other friendships at risk to protect his connection to Blue. But who is Blue, really? They only have ever emailed. What if he is not really who Simon imagines? What if it is all fake? What if he is making some of the biggest mistakes of his life?
