Happy Monday, book peoples!
Here’s my book recommendation for the day:
“Another secret of the universe: Sometimes pain was like a storm that came out of nowhere. The clearest summer could end in a downpour. Could end in lightning and thunder.”
Remember when I had that string of audiobooks I kept recommending? Here’s another! It’s true that Sáenz’s lyrical writing is amazing, but I first experienced Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by listening to Lin-Manuel Miranda read it. He just has one of those voices you can sit and listen to for hours, and he really brought these character to life for me. So, if you’re looking for a new audiobook to try, check this out!
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.
