Beautiful, beautiful book. It felt like a rare opportunity to see the world through the eyes of a teenage boy. A lot of YA books are told through the eyes of girls, so this was a treat.

An amazing thing about this book: both Ari and Dante have awesome, involved, caring parents, something that's nearly unheard of in YA novels. A story that's able to be interesting and teenagers who are able to evolve while having parents who know what's going on in their lives. Amazing. :) ( )

This book has been so hyped that I think I went in with too high of expectations, and I wanted to like this more than I did. I loved the realtionship between Dante and Aristotle. It felt very natural and I LOVED that their parents were fully part of the picture. So many YA books have absent parents. Things felt very "safe" in that regard which I appreciated. I come from a more privileged life with 2 very present parents so this felt familiar to me. This was definitely more of a coming of age/character study so even though the book didn't last very long, it didn't feel like much happened. I think I was just looking for a little bit more to happen with the plot. In addition, I didn't entire enjoy the writing style. The sentences felt too simplisitic to me and that contrasted with the amount of symbolic and metaphoric examples sprinkled throughout the writing. ( )

While it would be impossible for me to choose an honest favorite book of the year (I can't pick one), this would be one of the top candidates. 6 stars out of 5. No question. I loved all the different relationships within the book and how we got to see Aristotle (and many of the other characters, too) grow and change so much in the course of one year.

There are so many lines and quotes from the book that just resonate so strongly with me. I'm not a person who laughs out loud when reading usually. But this book multiple times had me laughing out loud but then a page later - or even sometimes in the same sentence - make me feel very strong other emotions. The writing is just so honest and real feeling. The chapters being of different lengths and the book being broken into different parts really worked well for the telling of this story.

If you haven't read this book yet, I highly highly highly recommend that you do. Multiple times. ( )

this book was honestly one of the most beautiful books I've read in a long time. The way the storyline effortlessly weaves from discussing the Latinx/mexican american experience to the way LGBTQ people are perceived within Latinx cultures just had my heart the whole way through. I finished this book last week and haven't stopped being able to think about it. Everyone should read this book! ( )

I loved this book. I think it's a story that either really connects for you or doesn't at all. I wasn't so sure about it for some, in the beginning, but not too far in I really loved the characters. They're such individuals. They don't really fit into any stereotypes for teens. It made them feel more realistic. I really liked being inside their heads and witnessing them growing up as issues happened. ♥︎

Why do we smile? Why do we laugh? Why do we feel alone? Why are we sad and confused? Why do we read poetry? Why do we cry when we see a painting? Why is there a riot in the heart when we love? Why do we feel shame? What is that thing in the pit of your stomach called desire?

I got to thinking that poems were like people. Some people you got right off the bat. Some people you just didn't get - and never would get. (p. 29)
The whole world seemed to be quiet and calm and I wanted to be the world and feel like that. (p. 105)
My mother and father held hands. I wondered what that was like, to hold someone's hand. I bet you could sometimes find all of the mysteries of the universe in someone's hand. (p. 140)
