Friendships, family, grief, joy, rage, faith, doubt, poetry, and love-this complex and sensitive book has room for every aspect of growing up!"-Margarita Engle, Newbery Honor-Winning author of The Surrender Tree
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.
Multi-award-winning novelist and poet Benjamin Alire Saenz is the author of several acclaimed books for teens, including the much-lauded Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe . He lives in El Paso, TX.
