“The Inexplicable Logic of my Life” by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
‘LGBTQ Latnx Students Share 12 Must-reads’ glsen.org
Recommended by Soli: This book is about a white boy named Sal who is adopted by his gay Mexicano father. Sal struggles with his cultural identity and who he really is as a person. I relate to Sal a lot because I am a Mexican student at a private school full of white students. In some ways I feel like I am not “acting Mexican” or “looking Mexican” because of the community I am in and I question aspects of my cultural identity.
