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.
