Benjamin Alire Sáenz was born in 1954 in his grandmother's house in Old Picacho, a small farming village in the outskirts of Las Cruces, New Mexico in 1954. He was the fourth of seven children and was raised on a small farm near Mesilla Park. Later, when the family lost the farm, his father went back to his former occupation—being a cement finisher. His mother worked as a cleaning woman and a factory worker. During his youth, he worked at various jobs—painting apartments, roofing houses, picking onions, and working for a janitorial service. He graduated from high school in 1972, and went on to college and became something of a world traveler. He studied philosophy and theology in Europe for four years and spent a summer in Tanzania. He eventually became a writer and professor and moved back to the border—the only place where he feels he truly belongs. He is an associate professor in the MFA creative writing program at the University of Texas at El Paso, the only bilingual creative writing program in the country. Ben Saenz considers himself a fronterizo, a person of the border. He is also a visual artist and has been involved as a political and cultural activist throughout his life. Benjamin Sáenz­ is a novelist, poet, essayist and writer of children's books. His young adult novel Sammy & Juliana in Hollywood was selected as one of the Top Ten Best Books for Young Adults in 2005, and his prize-winning bilingual picture books for children—A Gift from Papá Diego and Grandma Fina and Her Wonderful Umbrellas—have been best-selling titles. A Perfect Season for Dreaming is Ben's newest bilingual children's book which has received two starred reviews, one from Publishers Weekly and one from Kirkus Reviews. He has received the Wallace Stegner Fellowship, the Lannan Fellowship and an American Book Award. His first book of poems, Calendar of Dust, won an American Book Award in 1992. That same year, he published his first collection of short stories, Flowers for the Broken. In 1995, he published his first novel, Carry Me Like Water (Hyperion), and that same year, he published his second book of poems, Dark and Perfect Angels. Both books were awarded a Southwest Book Award by the Border Area Librarians Association. In 1997, HarperCollins published his second novel, The House of Forgetting. Ben is a prolific writer whose more recent titles include In Perfect Light (Rayo/Harper Collins), Names on a Map (Rayo/Harper Collins), He Forgot to Say Goodbye (Simon and Schuster), and two books of poetry Elegies in Blue (Cinco Puntos Press), and Dreaming the End of War (Copper Canyon Press).

5.0 out of 5 stars Es perfecto
Reviewed in Mexico on December 4, 2021
El libro me llegó un poco flojo del lomo, debo tener mucho cuidado porque siento que se pueden desprender muy fácil la portada (no viene muy sujeta).

Sobre la historia tenía dudas, tenía miedo porque la mayoría de veces las secuelas arruinan el primer libro, para mí este libro fue igual de hermoso que el primero.
El primero libro me dejó con dudas, sentí que a Ari con solo decirle que le gustaba Dante pensó que eso iba a resolver todos las dudas que tenía, yo sentía a Ari tan confundido, tenía miedo de que Ari realmente no amará a Dante.
Pero me equivoqué, en esta secuela explica que no resolvió todas sus duda, pero si una de ellas.
Me encantó el libro, no puedo decir que es mejor que el primero pero tampoco puedo decir que el primero es mejor que esté, los dos son una obra de arte.
Algo que me fascinó fue leer y sentir como Ari piensa demasiado las cosas y como vas avanzando en el libro poco a poco va resolviendo todo y dejé de sobrepensar todo.
Algo que siempre pasa cuando eres joven es estar demasiado confundió, con el paso del tiempo vas resolviendo tus dudas sobre uno mismo y quizá sobre el mundo, y el escritor lo supo plantear tan bien, me sentí leyendo mi adolescencia.
Recomiendo 100% este libro, se lleva mi corazón 💙
