I’m trying out this Waiting on Wednesday thing, and I’m starting with a book that I have been practically salivating over for months now. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe is a book that is incredibly special to me. It is something that I think absolutely everyone could benefit from reading. I have been waiting and waiting and WAITING for another book from Benjamin Alire Saenz, and it is finally almost here! If you haven’t read Aristotle and Dante yet, what are you waiting for??? Pick it up immediately, and then grab The Inexplicable Logic of My Life on March 7!

From the multi-award-winning author of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe comes a gorgeous new story about love, identity, and families lost and found.
Sal used to know his place with his adoptive gay father, their loving Mexican-American family, and his best friend, Samantha. But it’s senior year, and suddenly Sal is throwing punches, questioning everything, and realizing he no longer knows himself. If Sal’s not who he thought he was, who is he?
This humor-infused, warmly humane look at universal questions of belonging is a triumph.
