Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

(10)
This Printz Honor Book is a “tender, honest exploration of identity” (Publishers Weekly) that distills lyrical truths about family and friendship.

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.
Rezension

„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.

„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.

Lovely, lovely, lovely
von Svenja T am 20.08.2017

I am in love with these characters. The parents, Ari, Dante, Legs, all of them are wonderful and they all love each other so much, it's really heartwarming. The writing didn't always work for me. There were passages with too many short sentences and that just disrupted the flow. Which... I am in love with these characters. The parents, Ari, Dante, Legs, all of them are wonderful and they all love each other so much, it's really heartwarming. The writing didn't always work for me. There were passages with too many short sentences and that just disrupted the flow. Which is literally my only critism.
