The Inexplicable Logic of My Life, by Benjamin Alire Saenz
We absolutely loved this book. “The Inexplicable Logic of My Life is a brilliant story of youth at an end, adulthood on the horizon, the meaning of family, the many faces of love, and the difficulty of knowing how to hold on while at the same time letting go.” (That’s from our 5-star review of the novel.) It’s one of those reads that just flies by, despite its 464-page length. Think of it as a cross between a journal and a memoir, written by a modern teen with an old soul. At just $2.99 for a limited time, this is one not to miss!
From the publisher:
A “mesmerizing, poetic exploration of family, friendship, love and loss” from the acclaimed author of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. (New York Times Book Review)
Sal used to know his place with his adoptive gay father, their loving Mexican American family, and his best friend, Samantha. But it’s senior year, and suddenly Sal is throwing punches, questioning everything, and realizing he no longer knows himself. If Sal’s not who he thought he was, who is he?
This humor-infused, warmly humane look at universal questions of belonging is a triumph.
