In this companion to the award-winning Darius the Great Is Not Okay, Darius suddenly has it all: a boyfriend, an internship, a spot on the soccer team. It's everything he's ever wanted--but what if he deserves better?

Darius Kellner is having a bit of a year. Since his trip to Iran, a lot has changed. He's getting along with his dad, and his best friend Sohrab is only a Skype call away. Between his first boyfriend, Landon, varsity soccer practices, and an internship at his favorite tea shop, things are falling into place.

Then, of course, everything changes. Darius's grandmothers are in town for a long visit, and Darius can't tell whether they even like him. The internship is not going according to plan, Sohrab isn't answering Darius's calls, and Dad is far away on business. And Darius is sure he really likes Landon . . . but he's also been hanging out with Chip Cusumano, former bully and current soccer teammate--and well, maybe he's not so sure about anything after all.

Darius was just starting to feel okay, like he finally knew what it meant to be Darius Kellner. But maybe okay isn't good enough. Maybe Darius deserves better.

What a beautiful book, I love how Adib writes his characters, so real, so full of heart. You definitely feel for them, which is a great thing as this book is real character driven not plot driven, it is really about a boy trying to navigate life, with all the insecurities that come with been a teenager, trying to be all these things that we think at that age we are supposed to be. Trying to be like, wanting to be love. And Darius is such a sweet boy, always there for his family, his sister, trying not to hurt anyone’s feelings, but maybe doing it anyway because he is human after all. I did not cry as much with one as with the first one but still a lot of strings were pulled and feeling were had and laughter was done out loud. I really loved the narration too, as I finally could hear how every name was correctly said. I love the narration too, with all the different accents well done and distinctive.
