#68 – Darius the Great Is Not Okay by Adib Khorram

On this episode, we discuss our Books and Boba March 2019 book club pick, Darius the Great Is Not Okay, by Adib Khorram, the story of Darius, a teenage kid who loves Star Trek and Tolkien, and his trip to his mother’s home country of Iran to visit his ailing grandfather for the first time. We discuss Darius’ journey of finding his inner strength in Iran while dealing with clinical depression (CW: discussion of depression) and his anxieties of never really feeling like he fits in.

For additional thoughts and discussion on the monthly pick, visit the Books & Boba Goodreads forums.
