Em um verão tedioso, os jovens Aristóteles e Dante são unidos pelo acaso e, embora sejam completamente diferentes um do outro, iniciam uma amizade especial, do tipo que muda a vida das pessoas e dura para sempre. E é através dessa amizade que Ari e Dante vão descobrir mais sobre si mesmos - e sobre o tipo de pessoa que querem ser. Dante sabe nadar. Ari não. Dante é articulado e confiante. Ari tem dificuldade com as palavras e duvida de si mesmo. Dante é apaixonado por poesia e arte. Ari se perde em pensamentos sobre seu irmão mais velho, que está na prisão. Um garoto como Dante, com um jeito tão único de ver o mundo, deveria ser a última pessoa capaz de romper as barreiras que Ari construiu em volta de si. Mas quando os dois se conhecem, logo surge uma forte ligação. Eles compartilham livros, pensamentos, sonhos, risadas - e começam a redefinir seus próprios mundos. Assim, descobrem que o amor e a amizade talvez sejam a chave para desvendar os segredos do Universo.

The “Hollywood” where Sammy Santos and Juliana Ríos live is not the West Coast one, the one with all the glitz and glitter. This Hollywood is a tough barrio at the edge of a small town in southern New Mexico. Sammy and this friends—members of the 1969 high school graduating class—face a world of racism, dress codes, war in Vietnam and barrio violence. In the summer before his senior year begins, Sammy falls in love with Juliana, a girl whose tough veneer disguises a world of hurt. By summer’s end, Juliana is dead. Sammy grieves, and in his grief, the memory of Juliana becomes his guide through this difficult year. Sammy is a smart kid, but he’s angry. He’s angry about Juliana’s death, he’s angry about the poverty his father and his sister must endure, he’s angry at his high school and its thinly disguised gringo racism, and he’s angry he might not be able to go to college. Benjamin Alire Sáenz, evoking the bittersweet ambience found in such novels as McMurtry’s The Last Picture Show, captures the essence of what it meant to grow up Chicano in small-town America in the late 1960s.

Benjamin Alire Sáenz—novelist, poet, essayist and writer of children’s books—is at the forefront of the emerging Latino literatures. He has received both the Wallace Stegner Fellowship and the Lannan Fellowship, and is a recipient of the American Book Award. Born Mexican-American Catholic in the rural community of Picacho, New Mexico, he now teaches at the University of Texas at El Paso, and considers himself a “fronterizo,” a person of the border.
