This book was a really awesome take on mental health and depression in all ages. It reminded me a lot of The Patron Saints of Nothing, Frankly in Love, as well as Aristotle and Dante.

This book really opens up on the heart of Darius and how he struggles with understanding who he is. He’s half Persian, and half European heritage, so he really wonders throughout the novel if he belongs anywhere.

Through the wonderful settings and unique characters, Darius the Great really shows people, especially teenagers struggling to find themselves, that it’s okay to be not okay, and that you are a pretty great person, no matter what people think of you.
