Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.
This Week I’m Waiting On…..
The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz
Publication: March 7th 2017
Publisher: Clarion Books
Genres: YA, Contemporary, Cultural
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.
Why Am I Waiting?
Next year will be all about reading Bicultural & Multicultural books. I love reading diverse stories, and there are quite a few that I want to add to my shelf and read as soon as possible. A Mexican-American family seems like a perfect fit. I haven’t read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe yet but I have it on my shelf, and everyone always recommends it; so I’m eager to try this author. What book are you waiting on this week?
