Description:
 Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz

This Printz Honor Book is a "tender, honest exploration of identity" that distills lyrical truths about family and friendship.
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.

Get Lit is a book discussion group for those adventurous souls who would like to read a little something different. We meet at Crawford Brew Works (3659 Devils Glen Road). No reservations are needed, and participants do not need to finish the book or like the book to join in the discussion. For more information, please call 563-344-4187 or email dotten@bettendorf.org. Get Lit is supported by the Friends of the Bettendorf Public Library.
