The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by best-selling author Saenz Benjamin Cura is a wonderful story of three college bound Latino teens during a pivotal year in their lives.  The book is written by Salvador, a Caucasian boy adopted by a gay man when his mother died, and it describes his internal struggle as his happy home life is torn apart by the illness of his beloved grandmother; the death of his best friend, Samantha’s mother; jealousy triggered when his father’s lover reenters the picture; and the struggles of his friend, Fito, who lives a tragically difficult life with his drug addicted mother and brothers.  This is a beautiful coming of age story about friends and family, love and loss, that should not be missed! 

— From Staff Reviews


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.
