Review: Love, Creekwood

Review Love Creekwood

Love, Creekwood is a wonderful and fitting farewell to the world and characters introduced by Becky Albertalli in Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. This epistolary novella is told through a collection of group emails between Simon, Bram, Leah, Abby, and the rest of the gang.

From the publisher:

It’s been more than a year since Simon and Blue turned their anonymous online flirtation into an IRL relationship, and just a few months since Abby and Leah’s unforgettable night at senior prom.

Now the Creekwood High crew are first years at different colleges, navigating friendship and romance the way their story began—on email.

As soon as I started Love, Creekwood, I was immediately enveloped in the familiar voice of the characters I loved so much in Simon, Leah on the Offbeat and The Upside of Unrequited. If you enjoyed any of those, you’re going to need to read Love, Creekwood.

Although it’s a short book, it introduces some conflict among the characters as they share their experiences apart from each other and plan a reunion. You’ll find the resolution perfect!

And, in case you needed another reason to pick up this book, Albertalli announced that she would be donating all of the proceeds from the sale of Love, Creekwood to the Trevor Project, a non-profit organization which provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning youth.
