Benjamin Alire Sáenz

 Summer was here again. Summer, summer, summer. I loved and hated summers. Summers had a logic all their own and they always brought something out in me. Summer was supposed to be about freedom and youth and no school and possibilities and adventure and exploration. Summer was a book of hope. That’s why I loved and hated summers. Because they made me want to believe. ― Benjamin Alire Sáenz, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers; First Edition edition, February 21, 2012)
