Smile Quotes From Becky Albertalli

One of the things   that 'Love, Simon' is doing that hasn't been done before is it's a gay teen   rom-com with a mainstream wide release and the backing of a studio that   previous gay rom-coms have not had. I'm really excited by that.

I've worked a lot   with kids who identify as LGBTQ or gender nonconforming, and they are   unquestionably some of the bravest people I've ever met.

My book, 'Simon   vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda,' is a gay love story. It's also a story about   friendship. Quite honestly, it's also probably a 320-page product placement   for Oreos.

I've been fat   since fourth grade and bullied for it, but I still knew I couldn't represent   every kids' experience.

From a plot   perspective, what I finally found for my touchstone was that I consider   'Upside' to be a loose telling of Jane Austen's 'Emma,' or 'Clueless.'

Greg Berlanti is   in charge of a lot of superhero shows on television. He is a literal   superhero. He is absolutely brilliant.
