Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz

Reviewed by Jen Bremer (Library Staff)

This is an absolutely beautiful book and listening to it as an audiobook is even more spectacular. The lyrical prose combined with narration by the amazing Lin Manuel Miranda is a match made in heaven. The story follows two Mexican American boys coming of age in the late 1980s as they wrestle with racial and ethnic identity, sexuality, and family relationships. This story will make you laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time. I truly cannot recommend this book enough.
