    *Starred Review* This delightful sequel to Darius the Great Is Not Okay (2018) finds Darius back in Portland, openly gay, and with a boyfriend (his first) named Landon. Darius has his dream job working part-time at Rose City Teas, which keeps the young tea connoisseur stocked with his favorite beverage. But things are unsettled at home. Money is tight, and his parents are working themselves to a frazzle, while his father is experiencing a major depressive episode, even as Darius continues to deal with his own depression. At school, the odious Trent still bullies Darius mercilessly; although, to his credit, beautiful Chip, Trent's best friend, has become Darius' friend as well. The best thing about school, however, is Darius being on the varsity soccer team, which the former loner thinks is pretty cool. But change is never far from Darius' life, much of it unwelcome. What will come of his relationship with Landon, for example? What is up with Chip? And why won't his best friend, Sohrab, who's in Iran, accept or return his calls? Khorram has done a beautiful job of limning Darius' development as a character, creating situations that believably foster his growth. The plot, rich in incident, is compelling, and the best thing is an open ending, which promises another book about the appealing Darius, who remains great. Grades 9-12.

Author Notes

Adib Khorram lives in Kansas City, Missouri. When he isn't writing, you can probably find him trying to get his hundred-yard freestyle under a minute, learning to do a Lutz jump, or steeping a cup of oolong. His debut novel, Darius the Great Is Not Okay, earned several awards, including the William C. Morris Debut Award, the Asian/Pacific American Award for Young Adult Literature, and a Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor.
