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.

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.
