Staff Reviews

When two 15-year old boys become unlikely friends, a deep and meaningful relationship unfolds.  This is a modern coming of age story with heart, twists and a powerful ending.  As a mother of two teenage boys, I really enjoyed this story.  A great read for young adults or parents of teenage boys who want to get inside their boys' heads!

— From Bonnie recommends


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.
