The Inexplicable Logic of My Life | Benjamin Alire Saenz

I listened to this because I remember loving Aristotle and Dante a couple years ago. This was just as good!

It‘s the story of Sal, a senior in high school, and his two best friends and his dad. It‘s a story of being an adopted kid trying to decide if you‘d want to know your birth parent. It‘s a story of adolescent anger. It‘s a story of knowing that a loved one is dying of cancer. And it‘s beautifully told.

Mehso-so

This book takes on A LOT, tho how well it does so varies quite a bit. Appreciate the focus on Julia‘s struggles w/depression & anxiety, especially how she didn‘t even realize that‘s what it was at first. And I liked that she stick to her guns about what she wanted in life. However, damn this girl is the queen of fat-shaming, slut-shaming, girl hate, etc. I get that might be typical for her age, but wish we saw some character growth there. 3/5 ⭐️

There are days I feel like I‘m being held together by string. Other times I feel entirely unstitched and unhinged.

When the book's author likes your review 😳😯🤯😬🤔😄🤓😁😃🥳

All the emojis!

Your girl does not claim to be a professional reviewer nor very good about putting thoughts and emotions about a reading experience into something logical... or something that'll encourage someone else to pick up this book... but I strive to be genuine and this poetry collection will always have a little spot in my border kid heart.

Hooked_on_books How cool that he liked your review! I actually had an author “like” my review on goodreads when I hated the book. Yikes! 😳 2mo

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

For me, this was an exceptional book. I saw myself and my husband... my very own Güero... in many of its poems. I saw my familia (family) and our traditions and our costumbres (customs) and even the dichos (traditional sayings) my Mom is so fond of imparting on us. I saw fragments of my hometown in México and the border city in Texas that embraced us when we first moved to the United States.

(Continued in comments below ⬇️)

Librariana I saw a protagonist straddling and balancing two cultures and I understood. I saw memories reflected back to me... and boy, did this make my heart smile. 2mo
Paperback.Propensity Wow I have to read this 2mo
