"This book is YA gold; a tension-filled war setting, beautiful young love, family strength and all heart. Read it today!"—Laurie Halse Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of Speak

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe meets Code Name Verity in this heartbreaking and poignant story of survival.

James Mills isn't sure he can forgive his parents for dragging him away from his life to a foreign country he knows almost nothing about, not to mention hundreds of miles away from his best friend and sister, Anna. He's never felt so alone. He knows his mom and dad's aid work is important, but couldn't they wait to save the world until after he finished senior year?

Enter Tomás. Falling for Tomás is unexpected, but sometimes the best things in life are.

Then their world splits apart. A war that has been brewing finally bursts forward, filled with violence, pain, and cruelty. James and Tomás can only rely on each other as they decide how far they are willing to go—and who they are willing to become—in order to make it back to their families.
