Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe meets Netflix's Gentefied in ANDER AND SANTI WERE HERE, the sophomore young adult novel from Pura Belpré Honor recipient Jonny Garza Villa.
 

When Ander takes a gap year to paint murals in San Antonio, they are “fired” from the family taqueria, much to their annoyance. That is, until they meet Santi, the captivating Mexican waiter who replaced them, and—after finding their way back into a few shifts with him—the two fall for each other fiercely and wonderfully. Yet even surrounded by family, community, and the electricity of new love, a dark shadow looms. When ICE agents raid the taqueria and Santi becomes a target, every happiness they’ve fought for is put in peril.
