Darius is a self-proclaimed nerd. He likes Star Trek and Lord of the Rings and gets bullied because of it. No one wants to be his friend and he struggled with depression. When his family travels to Iran to see their grandfather, Darius finally makes a friendship that changes his life. This book was very unexpected to me, I did not know very much about Persian culture or language or food and I think that I learned a lot by reading this book. I thought that there might be more romance in it, but overall it is an amazing book about friendship and family and finding yourself in a new place. It really made me want to travel and I felt like I was transported to a new land by reading this story. It is a good book to recommend to people who don't like romance in their stories. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. 4/5 stars - SAPL Read It & Review Contributor
