Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli, read by Arielle DeLisle.
Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love-she's lived through it twenty-six times. She crushes hard and crushes often, but always in secret. Because 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. Will is funny, flirtatious, and just might be perfect crush material. Maybe more than crush material. And if Molly can win him over, she'll get her first kiss and she'll get her twin back.
There's only one problem: Molly's coworker, Reid. He's an awkward Tolkien superfan, and there's absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right?
Heart-fluttering, honest, and hilarious. I can't stop hugging this book.
I have such a crush on this book! Not only is this one a must read, but it's a must-reread.
I love you, Simon. I love you! And I love this fresh, funny, live-out-loud book.
A remarkable gift of a novel.
Hilarious and heartbreaking . . . Readers will fall madly in love with Simon
Books like SIMON do change people's lives
A wonderfully charismatic story about coming-of-age and coming out
Funny, moving and emotionally wise
I think I just felt my heart explode in my chest
In the sequel to Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, we follow Simon's BFF Leah as she grapples with changing friendships, first love, and senior year angst in Leah on the Offbeat.
