Publisher Description

This Printz Honor Book is a “tender, honest exploration of identity” (Publishers Weekly) that distills lyrical truths about family and friendship.

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.

You wont be able to put it down

I don’t review books very often, but I think this I’ll make an exception for this one. I read the whole book in just a couple hours and I almost cried (Or maybe did a little) a thousand times. I loved the ugly of the story and I loved the beautiful and so will you.

I’d give more stars if I could

- Favorite book so far, which is a big statement. But I loved all of it. The mundane things that make you smile, yeah it was full of it. The dry humor and sarcasm. Actually witnessing the characters grow through text. The realness of how we see ourselves at our teen years. The way the words flowed from my eyes through my chest to the tips of my fingers. It made me happy, so incredibly happy and detached from the world while simultaneously loving and feeling connected to it. The parents, oh god the parents. The freaking tension!!!!!!! Once it picked up, I could not put down. Finished in 4-5 hours
