Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

This lyrical novel is one of the best books I have ever read. 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.

The audiobook for this beautiful story is read by Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda and is available on hoopla with no wait. If you prefer the ebook, you can find it on OverDrive Download Destination.
