On My Wishlist; The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Sáenz


The Inexplicable Logic of My Life
by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
464 p.
Publisher: Clarion Books
Published: March 7, 17
From the multi-award-winning author of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe comes a gorgeous new story about love, identity, and families lost and found.

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
I know I rarely have contemporary YA on my wishlist, but I could NOT resist that title! Perhaps this is the title of my life. LOL Oh and plus this one is diverse and we need more of that!

So, what is on your wishlist this week... or what is the title of your life? :D
