Synopsis: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe meets I'll Give You the Sun in an exhilarating and emotional novel about the growing relationship between two teens boys, told through the letters they write to one another.

Jonathan Hopkirk and Adam "Kurl" Kurlansky are partnered in English class, writing letters to one another in a weekly pen pal assignment. With each letter, the two begin to develop a friendship that eventually grows into love. But with homophobia, bullying, and devastating family secrets, Jonathan and Kurl struggle to overcome their conflicts and hold onto their relationship...and each other.

This rare and special novel celebrates love and life with engaging characters and stunning language, making it perfect for fans of Jandy Nelson, Nina LaCour, and David Levithan.

My Review: When I started reading this novel, I truly enjoyed the direction it was taking, as a reader. You all know I LOVE myself a novel written in multiple POV’s in this case, the novel is told through letters, letters the protagonists ‘Jo’ and ‘Kurl’ write each other through a pen pal program that starts in English class. What starts as an assignment continues as a friendship, and builds from there. 

A heartbreakingly realistic LGBTQ read, that will make you have all the feels, happy, emotional, confused, sad.. 

I worth while read, if your heart can stand it.
