I love this quote from Simon vs. I love Simon vs in general. There are just so many quotable phrases from this book.
On a side note, anyone else finding it hard to recommend books to their loved ones? My mom is looking for a good book to read. The thing is, she is a very traditionally-minded person who goes to a very traditionally-minded church.

Looking back on the books that I’ve read this year, they all have some combination of sex, LGBT characters, or characters who are contemplating or about to commit suicide. I really don’t know what to recommend to my mom…
