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.

Kind, generous, loving, funny, knowing - both the story and the performance. A great book no matter what your age.

I've come to this after I read His Dark Materials , three of my favorite books ever. They may have a rival now! Beautifully written and performed.
