This book is the equivalent of that warm-crazy-high feeling you get when you're in a car during a storm with your best friend who you have feelings for and you don't know whether or not you're going to kiss them. And I didn't know how to put that feeling into words until I read that very beautiful scene. It's one of the most honest and amazing literary portrayals of coming to terms with your sexuality and identity.

My all time favorite LGTBQ story. If you haven't read it, you're missing out.

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.
