[***] A fun read-aloud picture book about an excited penguin who can’t wait to meet his new friend again. This will have the readers want to do the penguin dance!
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I started listening to this first as an audio book but I couldn’t get into it. I then picked it up again as a physical book after all the buzz it’s been getting.
It was an enjoyable read with fortune cookie life insights here and there.
As I may have written in my other reviews before, I don’t really like teenage angst books and I’m particularly wary when it has LGBT characters. Sometimes their experiences (as with this novel) result in me feeling less connected rather than glad there’s a character representing my lifestyle.
