Perhaps the most poignant book about love in all of YA fiction. It is about the slow awakening that happens when you open yourself to possibility and to letting go of who you thought you were. It is also about what you will do for those that you love. I highly recommend this novel to anyone, at any age.
A lyrical novel about family and friendship from critically acclaimed author Benjamin Alire SÁenz.
Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be.
