Darius the Great Is Not Okay

Darius doesn't think he'll ever be enough, in America or in Iran. Hilarious and heartbreaking, this unforgettable debut introduces a brilliant new voice in contemporary YA.

Winner of the William C. Morris Debut Award

"Heartfelt, tender, and so utterly real. I'd live in this book forever if I could."
-Becky Albertalli, award-winning author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Darius Kellner speaks better Klingon than Farsi, and he knows more about Hobbit social cues than Persian ones. He's a Fractional Persian-half, his mom's side-and his first-ever trip to Iran is about to change his life.

Darius has never really fit in at home, and he's sure things are going to be the same in 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. Soon, they're spending their days together, playing soccer, eating faludeh, and talking for hours on a secret rooftop overlooking the city's skyline. Sohrab calls him Darioush-the original Persian version of his name-and Darius has never felt more like himself than he does now that he's Darioush to Sohrab.

Adib Khorram's brilliant debut is for anyone who's ever felt not good enough-then met a friend who makes them feel so much better than okay.

Buchhändler-Empfehlungen

A beautiful mixture of nerdiness, identity, heritage, culture, family and an unique friendship!

R. Hußmann, Thalia-Buchhandlung Bergisch Gladbach

Darius has two main interests: Star Trek and tea. Although he is sure that his love for tea is coming from his mothers' side - his Persian roots - as does his appearance with his curly black hair, tanned skin and brown eyes, Darius never had the feeling that he belonged. Growing up in the US he has never had a lot of friends and often even feels like an outsider in his own family. When his Persian grandfather whom he has never met before falls ill his parents decide to fly to Iran to visit and see him one last time. And this is where the journey begins. As reader you accompany him on his journey not only to another continent, another country, but on a journey that helps him to connect to this Persian roots of his - as well as to his family and to Sohrab, a boy from the neighbourhood. This book is just beautifully written and full bittersweet moments and not only for Star Trek nerds (or nerds in general). It is a joy for anyone who at one point in his or her life felt disconnected in any way.
