It took me a little bit to adjust to this book when I started, because it definitely takes place in a hyperreal teenage world.... Ari has life-changing things happen to him that don't matter later at all, and he thinks & writes in cliches, and does stupid things, and has weird relationships and weird dreams and stilted conversations, and all of those things are perfect because that's exactly how being a teenager feels.

The book's written in an easygoing, free-flowing style that's eminently readable. There's no plot, really. It's just about Ari and Dante and what they're feeling and doing and how they grow up. It's not flashy. It's simple and good.

About the end: To those who think that Ari coming out was supposed to be a big plot twist, or that he didn't know he was gay until his parents told him, I can see how you could read the ending in that way and be disappointed by that suddenness. But the way I saw it, Ari was thinking and feeling things that go unrecorded through the whole book, things that are revealed only through his actions and confusions... Sáenz's style, with many long stretches of dialogue uninterrupted by interpretation, feels very true to the way in which teenagers, and really all of us, must often decipher each other through our words alone. It's easier to figure out how Dante is feeling-- in most ways he's an open book. Ari, even though we experience the entire story through his perspective, is much less readable, even (or especially) to himself. Anyway, those are just my thoughts. ( )

I found the writing style and dialogue in this book to be very awkward. None of the characters felt real to me. Ari's thoughts, which comprise most of the book, are jumbled and repetitive which may be accurate for a teenager but are not enjoyable to read as an adult. Issues are raised without much purpose and then left unresolved. Without spoiling the plot, events toward the end of the story are unrealistic. I would have liked more sexual tension, too! ( )

Teenage fears and insecurities are the subject of this YA book. It is a reaffirmation of love, whether romantic love or family love. ( )

Aristotle (Ari) could be described as a bit of a loner, keeping people at least an arm's length away. But when he goes to the swimming pool one day in the summer (even though he can't really swim), he finds a potential new friend in Dante. Although Dante is also a bit of a loner, he's less jaded and more spirited than Ari, which seems at first like it may not bode well for a budding friendship. As the two get to know each other better, however, they learn that they can find commonality even in their differences. They face a number of challenges, both individually and together, that bring them together in ways neither expected.

This is a beautifully-written and compelling narrative. Written from Ari's perspective, there is an authenticity to the narration that brings the characters to life on the page. The development of the characters (including those in the background) is defined and believable, presented in ways that make sense in the context of the plot and that keep readers connected to and grounded in this universe. Incredibly enjoyable and moving at the same time. ( )

Wow. That was an incredible book. Definitely one off the best books that I have read in a long time. I want to buy this book for my room. I really hope the auther has written many other books. The relationship between Dante and Aristotle was such a strong connection that came to life trough a book. Its been a long time since I have laid down and just read for hours on end. I would recommend this book to anybody and everybody. ( )

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)
