Review | Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Don’t shoot me for what I am about to say: this is a good book, but I didn’t love it. 3.5/5 stars

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz cover

What it’s about: 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.

My take:

All in all, I enjoyed this book. I liked the characters, the plot and the mix of Aristotle’s mundane (and often confused) thoughts with the more lyrical passages. It has won awards for representing more diverse characters than those often found in YA fiction and this praise is undoubtedly deserved.
