Benjamin Alire Saenz

"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.

Benjamin Alire Sáenz is an acclaimed writer for adults and teens. His novel Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe won a Printz Honor Award, the Pura Belpre, Lambda, and Stonewall Book Awards. Mr. Sáenz lives in El Paso, Texas.
