    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.

    When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat - but real life isn't always so rhythmic. She's an anomaly in her friend group: the only child of a young, single mom, and her life is decidedly less privileged. She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. And even though her mom knows she's bisexual, she hasn't mustered the courage to tell her friends - not even her openly gay BFF, Simon. So Leah really doesn't know what to do when her rock-solid friend group starts to fracture in unexpected ways. With prom and college on the horizon, tensions are running high.

    Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can't stomach the idea of rejection. So she's careful. Fat girls always have to be careful. Then a cute new girl enters Cassie's orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly's cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly's totally not dying of loneliness - except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie's new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick.

    Was Simon über Blue weiß: Er ist witzig, sehr weise, aber auch ein bisschen schüchtern. Und ganz schön verwirrend. Was Simon nicht über Blue weiß: WER er ist. Die beiden gehen auf dieselbe Schule und schon seit Monaten tauschen sie E-Mails aus, in denen sie sich die intimsten Dinge gestehen. Simon spürt, dass er sich langsam, aber sicher in Blue verliebt, doch der ist noch nicht bereit, sich mit Simon zu treffen. Dann fällt eine der E-Mails in falsche Hände - und plötzlich steht Simons Leben Kopf.
