  1. Book Title Darius the Great is Not Okay
  2. Book Description Darius Kellner speaks better Klingon than Farsi, and he knows more about Hobbit social cues than Persian ones. He has never really fit in at home in Portland, and he just knows things are going to be the same during his first ever visit to Iran. His clinical depression doesn't exactly help matters, and trying to explain his medication to his grandparents only makes things harder. Then Darius meets Sohrab, the boy next door, and everything changes. Sohrab introduces Darius to all of his favorite thingsmint syrup and the soccer field and a secret rooftop overlooking the city's skyline. And he understands that sometimes, friends don't have to talk. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Adib Khorram's brilliant debut is for anyone who's ever felt not good enoughthen met a friend who makes them feel so much better than okay. 8/2018
