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.
Dante was: sweet, caring, and unique. I liked Dante more than Ari.
Ari was: too full of teen angst, very honest (I liked that very much), and his POV was the best to read from.
What I Liked:
☄ The plot: The plot was slow, then fast, and then normal.Whatever the pace was during the book, I always enjoyed it.
