Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bookshelf Staple Very cute friendship to romance story. I love the voice that all the characters have despite having one POV character. Very good for people growing up thinking that their weird for not knowing who they are yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I need a sequel to this. I can't even explain how good this book is. It's almost like poetry. It's beautiful... the words, the characters, and even the angst. I think I might have fallen in love with Ari and Dante.

Editorial Reviews

“Benjamin Alire Saenz is a writer with a sidewinder punch. Spare sentences connect resonant moments, and then he knocks you down with emotional truth. The story of Ari and Dante’s friendship widens and twists like a river, revealing truths about how hard love is, how family supports us, and how painfully deep you have to go to uncover an authentic self.”
