In that case, you’d be glad to know that the most awaited sequel is finally just a few months away from our grabby hands and reader apps!
In the sequel entitled Aristotle and Dante Dive into the Waters of the World, they must discover what it means to stay in love and build a relationship in a world that seems to challenge their very existence.
Ari has spent all of his high schooQ days denying who he is, staying silent and invisible. He expected his senior year to be the same. But something in him cracked open when he fell in love with Dante, and he couldn’t go back. Suddenly he finds himself reaching out to new friends, standing up to bullies of all kinds, and making his voice heard. And, always, there is Dante, dreamy, witty Dante, who can get on Ari’s nerves and fill him with desire all at once.
The boys are determined to forge a path for themselves in a world that doesn’t understand them. But when Ari is faced with a shocking loss, he’ll have to fight like never before to create a life that is truthfully, joyfully, his own.
The highly anticipated sequel will be released on October 12, 2021, with this awesome cover below!
