£8.99
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

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 they meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the two loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special kind of friendship--the kind of friendship that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through their friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves--and about the kind of people they want to be.

Ari has his problems. He’s a loner and he’s depressed, but he doesn’t quite know why. He’s very introverted and keeps to himself. But then he meets Dante at the swimming pool, who is his complete opposite; open and honest generally quite happy and cheery, and quite the intellectual. Where Ari would rather be alone, Dante will speak to anyone. Where Ari has quite a gloomy outlook on life, Dante is light and hopeful, and sees what others often miss. Both have their own problems, but in each other they find the friend they have always needed, and discover just exactly who they are. This is such a beautiful, incredible story. I absolutely loved it.
