Ride of his life

The Inexplicable Logic of my Life

Title: The Inexplicable Logic of my Life
By: Benjamin Alire Saenz

Salvador Silva has always thought that he knows where he fits into the world. Growing up in El Paso, Texas with his gay adoptive father and spending time with his best friend Samantha, his life has seemed fairly straightforward. But at the start of Sal’s senior year in high school, things begin to change. His father is suddenly ready for Sal to learn about his birth mother, his grandmother is sick with cancer, and Samantha is having problems at home. Sal doesn’t want things to change, but everything is making him question where he belongs. As the school year progresses, he learns that loss, grief, and love can bring people together. And that family can be more than just “mom” or “dad,” but can include the people you care about the most. Sal is in for the ride of his life in order to learn more about friends, family, and ultimately, himself.
