This could easily be read as a stand alone novel, but if you haven't read Fangirl yet, I encourage you to start there. That's where Simon and Baz first came to life, in Cath's (the main character of Fangirl) fan fiction. It seems only right to start there, especially as Fangirl is also an excellent story.

This story was different for Rainbow Rowell, and I absolutely adored it. My entire Saturday was consumed by reading this novel, because once I started it, there was no way I was going to put it down. It's the kind of story that begs you to lose yourself inside of it; clever, charming, ironic, heart-breaking, mysterious, hilarious, captivating, magical, nerdy. . .

No. It's not just nerdy. It's extremely bookish and nerdy, like YA book nerd paradise. It's like the inside of an 18-year-old bibliophile's head. All fangirls, fanboys, potterheads, twi-hards, and YA fanatics must read this story.
