Publication Date: 2014. Check Availability

Aristotle is angry. With a brother in prison and parents who refuse to talk about what happened, he thinks he's got a right to be. But when Ari meets cheerful and curious Dante at the swimming pool one hot summer day, it sparks the kind of friendship that will change both their lives and last a lifetime. Saenz is a poet and it shows in this book's language as he paints a picture of two boys growing to maturity together in 1980s El Paso. (Kristi)
