Weekend Book Giveaway: Darius the Great is not Okay

This week we’re giving away an Advanced Reader’s Copy of Darius the Great is not Okay by Adib Khorram. It’s not out until August, but you could be the first of your friends to read this new novel that is getting a lot of buzz.

From the Publisher: 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.

For your chance to win, please tell us about a friend that made you feel so much better than okay.

Winner will be picked on Wednesday, July 18th with the assistance of Random Number Generator. Be sure to leave a name with your entry, and check back to see if you won. To win you must be a teen (6th-12th grade, or age 12-18) who uses a Sno-Isle Library.
