If I ever have children, I hope they’ll read Albertalli’s books. There’s the story of the not-so-openly gay Simon, the overweight Molly, and her lesbian parents, and her sister who’s dating a pan-sexual girl. And these books show everyone’s struggles and thoughts and considerations. “The Upside of Unrequited”, like “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda“, make me live the lives of other people (which is the whole point of reading books!). And I only hope more people will read them, as they’ll make the world a more understanding place. And besides, they’re also fun enough to read.
