Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe is a truly amazing book–one of my favorites (and I don’t say that a lot!). It is written by Benjamin Alire Sáenz and won the Stonewall award.
The story follows introverted Aristotle (Ari), who meets a boy named Dante. An unlikely friendship forms between them, and they spend nearly every day together.
Then, an unfortunate accident breaks Ari’s legs. Dante moves away to Chicago, and Ari’s brother is imprisoned.
