The Inexplicable Logic of My Life

A "mesmerizing, poetic exploration of family, friendship, love and loss" from the acclaimed author of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe . ( New York Times Book Review ) Sal used to know his place with his adoptive gay father, their loving Mexican American family, and his best friend, Samantha. But it's senior year, and suddenly Sal is throwing punches, questioning everything, and realizing he no longer knows himself. If Sal's not who he thought he was, who is he? This humor-infused, warmly humane look at universal questions of belonging is a triumph.
Rezension
"The themes of love, social responsibility, death, and redemption are expertly intertwined with well-developed characters and a compelling story line. This complex, sensitive, and profoundly moving book is beautifully written and will stay with readers. VERDICT A must-purchase title, recommended for all school and public libraries." -School Library Journal, STARRED review "The well-constructed pacing of the novel, with its beautifully expansive prose punctuated by text messages between Sal and Sam, demonstrates the author's talent for capturing the richness of relationships among family and friends. The author of Printz Honor-winning Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (2012) offers another stellar, gentle look into the emotional lives of teens on the cusp of adulthood." -Kirkus, STARRED review "What the world needs now is a book like this one. Profoundly important and moving. Read it."-Bill Konigsberg, Stonewall Award-winning author of Openly Straight and The Porcupine of Truth "Thought-provoking and uplifting, this compelling coming-of-age novel treats the complexities of being human with compassion, and-above all-love."-Francisco Jiménez, Pura Belpré Honor-winning author of Breaking Through and Reaching Out "A needed, lovely, and powerful book"-Connie Griffin, Bookworks, Albuquerque "Sáenz presents readers with several beautifully drawn relationships... Sal is one of those characters you wonder about after the book is closed. Maybe Sáenz will tell us more." -Booklist
