In this moving audiobook, narrator Michael Levi Harris takes us into high schooler Darius Kellner's head--he's half Persian, he loves tea, he sees life through STAR TREK and LORD OF THE RINGS references, and, just like his dad, he's clinically depressed. Darius and his family live in Oregon, but they travel to Iran to visit his ailing grandfather. There, a new world opens up for Darius--as he gets to know his grandparents and learns about his Persian ancestry, listeners hear some Farsi and the accented English of Darius's grandparents and his new friend, Sohrab. Harris brings out all of Sohrab's earnest sweetness, and his sensitive narration emphasizes the connection between the boys as well as Darius's yearning to recapture the relationship he had with his father when he was younger.
