it was amazing

Beautiful! Such an amazing story about friendship, family, and sexuality. Along with the ideas of how masculinity is viewed from both Aristotle and Dante. I loved the parents and how their presence were in the book. I adored the friendship between Aristotle and Dante. I liked how the story wasn't necessary a coming out story for either boy, it was more about two characters who were discovering themselves. There were beautiful quotes that I wanted to highlight but sadly I couldn't because it was a library book. I'm happy that there is going to be a sequel! I need to know happens to the boys and their families. Does Ari write to his brother? Did Dante's mom have a boy or girl? More importantly, did Ari and Dante go to prom together? These are questions that I need answers to. Highly recommend this book to anyone. I am definitely buying my own copy.
