"the summer sun was not meant for boys like me. boys like me belonged to the rain." -benjamin alire sáenz, aristotle and dante discover the secrets of the universe.
i don't know why,but this quote resonates to me and i'm not sure if that is a good thing!
i started reading this book a few days ago and a lot of things have changed since then.i was a bit hesitant to read on after a few pages (my emotional quotient was already drained by life!) and i couldn't find the will to read on but i persevered and completed the book on saturday.
it is a beautifully emotional read and i enjoyed this peek into aristotle's life and his thoughts.
he is deeply troubled by the thoughts and wonderings about his imprisoned brother and his parents who refuse to talk about their captive son.
dante is an absolute know it all and has his own ideas and outlook for life.
they meet at a swimming pool during summer and the story progresses from there.
their parents are highly supportive and is the main framework of the book in a way.
they contemplate their identity (both are mexican-americans, they wonder what that means) and their sexuality (dante reaches the verdict sooner than ari)
this fantastic book was an absolute treat! and yes! i did cry while reading this - all good books make me!
i rate this read a 5/5!
it is a must read book!💕
look out for the review on the blog! i'm hoping to get a few free days next week so i'll be updating the blog with the reviews asap!
