#Benjamin Alire Sáenz
<div> —  Benjamin Alire Sáenz, from <a href="">the Huffpost article on the Aristotle and Dante sequel</a> </div><span>I wanted to write for the young people living through this time and say something important to them―something that matters. It’s not only the pandemic that makes us feel isolated. It’s also our politics and our hate and our bigotry and our racism that work to disconnect us from each other. But these terrible and powerful discourses will not succeed if we stay in solidarity with one another and if we stay true to the beauty that resides within us all.</span>

Can I just say, the cover is absolutely beautiful 💓

The new book cover matches with the first book perfectly ! 💕

It’s pretty crazy how the first book released back in 2012 which was almost a decade ago! INSANE! TRULY INSANE!

The author mentioned that the book has been gaining popularity recently which makes me very happy! Welcome New Aristotle & Dante Readers! ☺️

I’m so excited for the book to release! I saw a live stream with the Author (Benjamin Alire Sáenz) and he mentions how the upcoming book will resonate with the pandemic we are currently dealing with! I wonder how that would play out? 👀

He has also mentioned that he very much loves the cover for the upcoming book! He says it resonates with the first book because Aristotle & Dante first met at the swimming pool so it makes sense!

He also said that we are going to cry with the book.

I’m nervous but very excited!

I love Benjamin Alire Sáenz so much. I can truly say Aristotle and Dante has impacted my life thanks to him.

So excited 💖

“How could I have ever been ashamed of loving Dante Quintana?”

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz has been back in my mind from the moment I heard we were getting a sequel so I couldn’t resist doing some soft artwork of these boys. ❤️

I legit cannot wait for October. 😭

He loved beer
and crack. He loved heroin, ecstasy, the sad music
of the bars. He said he loved you too. You are
thinking of the night you met him. Late October
night, the breeze as soft as his black eyes. He was
so hungry for trouble. You were so hungry
for anything that resembled love. Your finger
tracing the tattoos on his chest, you dreamed
of living in the prison of his arms. But you refused
to live in the prison of his deadly nights. You
can’t survive without the morning
