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.

 

達里烏斯•凱爾納的克林貢語說得比他的波斯語還要好,而他對哈比人的社交常識的要比波斯文化懂得更多。就他母親那一方來說他算得上是半個波斯人,而他第一次的伊朗之行將從此改變他的人生。
 
達里烏斯從未真正融入家中的生活,他確信在伊朗的情況也會一樣。 他的憂鬱症對解決問題並無助益,而嘗試向祖父母解釋他的服藥只會讓事情變得更加困難。 然後達里烏斯遇到了住隔壁男孩索拉卜,一切都變了。 很快地,他們整天相處在一起,踢足球,吃涼粉,並在俯瞰城市天際線的秘密屋頂上聊上好幾個小時。索拉卜稱他為達里歐西(他的名字的用波斯語的說法),而達里烏斯自從成為索拉卜口中的達里歐西以後,感到從未有的踏實自在。
 
阿第卜•可藍的傑出的處女作是為那些原本覺得自己不夠出色,但是後來遇到了一個讓他們感覺自己很棒的朋友而寫的。
