Lin-Manuel Miranda captures every intense emotion in this gorgeously lyrical and intensely hopeful sequel to ARISTOTLE AND DANTE DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE. Ari Mendoza and Dante Quintana, two gay Mexican American teens in El Paso, spend a magical summer together before their last year of high school, being in love with each other and being supported by their loving parents, all set against the backdrop of the 1980s AIDS crisis. Once senior year starts, Ari opens himself up to making friends at school for the first time. Miranda offers subtle vocal differentiations for the characters--Dante sounds by turns playful, smug, and sensitive--but the core of the story belongs to Ari and his unlocked feelings as he navigates both joy and grief, all beautifully communicated through Miranda's empathetic narration.
