Review: Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

A lyrical novel about family and friendship from critically acclaimed author Benjamin Alire Sáenz.

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.

Beautiful story! I really liked it. I was highlighting my favorite parts all the time (which were a lot tbh) and I really really liked it.
Sometimes I thought Aristotle was whining a lot. But thats just me :)
This book you can read it in one sitting because the story just goes by fast and quick.

Aristotle tells the story. And he has such a relatable voice I really liked how he saw things and interpreted them.

Aristotle... angry angry angry.

Dante is so adorable in my opinion omg. Danteee <3

Dante and Aristotles friendship,  there was a moment I was so scared it would just break apart but this story ah its just amazing how they both grow with each other and there's so much growth in both of them and it's mostly about finding out themselves and their place in this universe.

I really like this book. So you should absolutely read it too.

★★★★★ on Goodreads.
