The Inexplicable Logic of My Life

A “mesmerizing, poetic exploration of family, friendship, love and loss” from the acclaimed author of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. (New York Times Book Review)
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.

    Well, I always think I’m in love, but now that I think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever been in love. Not really. Just these little, I don’t know what to call them, these attractions to good-looking bad boys

    She could be a storm. But she could be a soft candle lighting up a dark room.

    She is happy.

    And me? I have never been this happy.

    I keep that memory somewhere inside me—where it’s safe. I take it out and look at it when I need to. As if it were a photograph.
