Read in August, 2012

Benjamin Alire Saenz has yet to disappoint me. I first read his book Last Night I Sang to the Monsters, which was raw and a great look at humans and addiction. Aristotle and Dante is also a fantastic look at the inner workings of the human mind. Saenz writes in a style that pulls you right in. He allows you to love the characters when they are being both the best and worst of themselves. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe is a coming of age story. It is a story of personal acceptance, family dynamics. love and beauty. I could read this book over and over again and I imagine that I will always find something new in the story.
