The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Sáenz (EPUB)
The first day of senior year:
Everything is about to change. Until this moment, Sal has always been certain of his place with his adoptive gay father and their loving Mexican-American family.
The Inexplicable Logic of My Life
But now his own history unexpectedly haunts him, and life-altering events force him and his best friend, Samantha, to confront issues of faith, loss, and grief.
Suddenly Sal is throwing punches, questioning everything, and discovering that he no longer knows who he really is—but if Sal’s not who he thought he was, who is he?
The Inexplicable Logic of My Life is a different book than Aristotle and Dante… , but man, was it special. One of the reasons I love Sáenz’s writing so much is that he has such a love for his characters that you can’t help loving them, too, and seeing them in your mind’s eye.
He uses beautiful imagery and creates some poetic moments, even if at times some friction would have been avoided if people just said what they felt. But ultimately, this is one of those books that teaches you to let yourself be loved, and that no matter what your background or life situation is, you still are entitled to dream and believe in yourself.
