Darius calls himself a Fractional Persian. His mom is Iranian, and his dad is not. Darius has not learned Farsi like his little sister, but he does look Persian and he has inherited the Persian love for tea. Darius suffers from depression, like his dad, but that seems to be the only thing he has in common with his dad. They do share a love for Star Trek, but that is really the only time he feels a real connection with his dad.

Darius has never met his grandparents who live in Iran other than to talk to them on the computer. But when his grandfather gets sick, Darius’s parents make the decision to take the family to Iran to spend time with his grandparents. Darius is at first nervous about being in Iran but as he gets to know Sohrab, a boy his age, he starts to feel like he fits in for the first time. Sohrab is a good listener and he really tries to understand Darius, his relationship with his dad, and his depression. As the two boys become close friends, Darius begins to find himself.

This is a good story for anyone who is trying to find themselves and where they belong.

I think this is a book that can be powerful for anyone, but if you identify with any of the things that Darius is dealing with, it really gets you. In the author’s note at the end, Adib Khorram talks about wanting to portray depression as something that people live with and is a part of their life, but that it doesn’t rule them, and that’s one thing I really loved about this book. It felt like an honest representation of the way that depression can impact your thoughts, your energy, your relationships, but also that the way it manifests can be different for different people. In a book that was both funny and heartbreaking, there was a lot to say about identity, friendship, the portrayal of a relationship with a younger sibling, and the way that something that might seem small to someone else — watching an episode of Star Trek every night with your dad — can be the biggest thing to you when it’s the way that you spend time together and connect when you feel like you can’t talk. This book was also fantastic on audio. ( )

Darius works at the local tea emporium, and calls himself a "fractional Persian" because his mother is Persian, while his father is a blonde German, referred to as the Übermensch. He is bullied by others in high school, and really only has a single friend, who happens to be Persian. When his maternal grandfather is diagnosed as terminal, the family heads for Iran to say goodbye, where Daryoush becomes fast friends with Sohrab. The development of their friendship, his family and cultural dynamics, and the direct manner in which author Khorram deals with childhood depression are the highlights of the novel. ( )

I listened to this on audio and it was an absolute pleasure. I love how the main character related to everything via Star Trek and tea. Quirky yet full of depth and skillfully written. ( )

diverse teen/adult fiction (Fractional Persian/Persian-American deals with clinical depression, visits his Zoroastrian grandparents in Iran, makes friends with Baha'i neighbor. Lots of talk about tea, and Star Trek, and Tolkien).

character-driven novel with realistic portrayal of how depression affects some people, also rich in cultural details. There is some LGBTQA interest (he seems attracted to his new Iranian friend, but doesn't explore or talk about or act on those feelings), but this is more a story about a person connecting with his roots and his family and learning to talk to his dad about his depression; it is not a love story.
Parental note: Penises come up in conversation after other boys observe that his is uncircumcised in the locker-room, and the main character refers obliquely to his refraining from going "number three" in his grandmother's house. There is a joke about "hel/Hell" and "damming/damning," and another joke about literal dog "shit." ( )
