Latinx Heritage Month Book Recommendation

Celebrate Latinx Heritage Month with a great read! There are few better reads than Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz. This is a coming of age novel that follows the budding friendship between Aristotle Mendoza and Dante Quintana in the late 1980s. The boys struggle with ethnic identity, sexuality, and interfamily issues.

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.” – Amazon discription
