Publisher's summary

Now a major motion picture from 20th Century Fox: Love, Simon.

William C. Morris Award Winner: Best Young Adult Debut of the Year 

National Book Award Longlist

"A remarkable gift of a novel." (Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle)

"I am so in love with this book." (Nina LaCour, author of Hold Still)

"Feels timelessly, effortlessly now." (Tim Federle, author of Better Nate Than Ever)

"The best kind of love story." (Alex Sanchez, Lambda Award-winning author of Rainbow Boys and Boyfriends with Girlfriends)

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: If he doesn't play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone's business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he's been emailing with, will be compromised. 

With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon's junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he's pushed out - without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he's never met.

For some reason, a lot of people equate "growing up" with "growing serious." But while interests may change over time, age does not have to be the deciding factor in what games you play, what movies you watch, or what books you enjoy. The young adult audiobooks on this list are truly timeless: grownup listeners can relate to YA classics in a whole new way or find new favorites among more recent offerings.
