An awkward teen who always feels like an outsider wonders if he'll find himself on a family trip to Iran.

Darius is a nerdy kid who always feels like he doesn't fit in. He thinks he isn't American enough or Persian enough or smart enough or athletic enough. His mother is from Iran and he thinks of his white father as "the ubermensch." When the family learns his grandfather is ill, Darius makes the journey to Iran for the first time. Khorram's debut story of culture, friendship, family and self-acceptance is a great read for fans of John Corey Whaley and Adam Silvera.
