Benjamin Alire Saenz, The Inexplicable Logic of My Life

Multi-award winning author and poet Benjamin Alire Saenz's gorgeous teennovel, set on the American border with Mexico, about family and friendship, life and death, and one teen struggling to understand what his adoption does and doesn't mean about who he is.

Sal used to know his place with his adoptive gay father, their loving MexicanAmerican 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.

Multi-award-winning novelist and poet Benjamin Alire Saenz is the author of several acclaimed books for teens, including the much-lauded Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. He lives in El Paso, TX.
