Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

(1)
A lyrical novel about family and friendship from critically acclaimed author Benjamin Alire Sáenz.

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.

„By far my favourite contemporary novel!!“

Lena B., Thalia-Buchhandlung Linz Lentia

The encounter between Ari and Dante isn't intentional, yet they become close friends immediately.
Aristotle doesn't know how to swim. Dante can't speak spanish properly. Ari is the youngest of four siblings. Dante is an only child. Although they have nothing in common they develop a bond that's going to be far more than just friendship.
The encounter between Ari and Dante isn't intentional, yet they become close friends immediately.
Aristotle doesn't know how to swim. Dante can't speak spanish properly. Ari is the youngest of four siblings. Dante is an only child. Although they have nothing in common they develop a bond that's going to be far more than just friendship. Together they learn new things and grow with the fact of having a friend who understands what it means to be different. They don't need other friends. The just need each other.
What began with a question at an outdoor swimming pool expands into a sturdy bond rapidly.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe is a novel about friendship, love, finding oneself, self acceptance, discovering life and moreover the problems and difficulties in life.

Reading this book made me think and rethink a lot of things. It is a fantastic written novel and after reading it for the first time I just couldn't not read it again a few months later. Beyond that, I absolutely adore the cover of this book because it just reflects the plot so well.

„Discovering the Secretes of the Universe“

Sabrina Reiter, Thalia-Buchhandlung Wien, Donauzentrum

This award-winning YA novel is all about growing up, finding out who you are and embracing that person.

Ari has always been a loner. Until he meets Dante, that is. Even though they are quite different they're quick to form a bond that's not easily broken. Hospital stays, time apart and the general awkwardness of being a teenager
This award-winning YA novel is all about growing up, finding out who you are and embracing that person.

Ari has always been a loner. Until he meets Dante, that is. Even though they are quite different they're quick to form a bond that's not easily broken. Hospital stays, time apart and the general awkwardness of being a teenager don't stop them from discovering all the secrets of the universe.

This book has no overly exciting plotline, but rather deals with the everyday life of the average teenager. It's about finding out who you are - be that ethnically, personally or sexually - and coming to terms with it.

"Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe" is a heart-warming, funny and true-to-life read with likable and relatable characters and I recommend this book to teenagers aged 14 and up.

PLOT: 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. REVIEW: The book has won numerous awards, including the Lambda Literary Award and Stonewall Book Award for LGBT fiction, an Amelia Elizabeth Walden Award Honour, Pura Belpré Author Award for Latino fiction, and Michael L. Printz Award Honour for Young Adult fiction. About Ari: "Yeah, I had all kinds of tragic reasons for feeling sorry for myself. Being fifteen didn't help. Sometimes I thought that being fifteen was the worst tragedy of all." About Dante: "And it seemed to me that Dante's face was a map of the world. A world without any darkness.Wow, a world without darkness. How beautiful was that? " I read an extract from "Fangirl" by R. Rowell, and all I though was, how pathetic Cat was. SO boring and dull! I mean she rather eats in a toilet than go and find the Mensa, that´s so there isn´t even a word for that! Ari isn´t exactly bursting with life but other than Cat he is funny and he somehow has a point. There is a darkness in him that I suspect exists in everyone, in Ari it is just more thoroughly shaped. Anyway I got it, his anger and I think Dante was the perfect counterpart for him! It changed Ari in the best possible way! FAZIT: "Words were different when they lived inside of you."
