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.

“When I listened to Lin-Manuel Miranda read the first audiobook I thought it was amazing. When I was working on the sequel I thought, wouldn’t it be amazing if he could read this one as well. I thought that was just a pipe dream. Behold! Sometimes dreams come true. I couldn’t be happier.”
