Love, Simon is based on Becky Albertalli’s book Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda. While the title is different, the book’s spirit remains in Love, Simon. Both are about Simon (Nick Robinson), a high school boy who has not come out yet. When an anonymous student comes out on a website, Simon corresponds with the boy with the alias Blue. Simon has a group of friends like Leah (Katherine Langford), Abby (Alexandra Shipp) and Nick (Jorge Lendeborg Jr.).
