A YA novel about fitting in and embracing who you are.

An Iranian-American teen, Darius struggles with depression and his relationship with his American father. A Star Trek and Tolkien fan, he would rather read or talk about Jean Luc Picard than play football.  He gets bullied at school for who he is but his spring break visit to Iran to meet his grandparents for the first-time changes everything. Darius learns about his ancestral roots, his talents and what acceptance really means.
