Waiting on Wednesday: The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz
The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz. 464 p. Clarion Books/ Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, March 7, 2017. 9780544586506.
Publisher synopsis: Sal used to know his place with his adoptive gay father, their loving Mexican American 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.
I adored Aristotle and Dante Discover the Universe and am so looking forward to this. The cover of this new one is evocative of the cover of Aristotle and Dante. (Check out all those medals!)
