Happy Sunday, friends! Welcome to Sunday Portraits, where we give a face to our beloved book friends!

 Today we have: Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli:

Simon Spier
In the books, Simon is described as having blonde hair and gray eyes. He also needs so wears glasses and is called "cute" by Peter, a junior college student, whom he meets at a bar.

In the movies, he is shown to be brunette with brown eyes, and only wears glasses in flashbacks, suggesting that he wears contacts.

Simon is a very lovable character. He's kind, he's sweet, and he tries his best to do the right thing. Admittedly, at some points in the book, I did think he should've spoken up about his troubles to people directly, and by troubles I don't mean his orientation. But other than that, really, one can only admire such a mature teenager, and such a lovely person.

I chose to paint him by the book, since I haven't seen the movie yet, and I can't get into that character. But that said, I don't mind the actor choice for the role from general visuals, and can only hope that the movie is just as great as the book was.
