So today I am going to talk about this awesome book I read. Its called; Darius The Great is Not Okay. IT IS SO SWEET AND JUST O MI GOODNESS. It is such an amazing book.
genre: YA, Mental Health, Coming of Age, Bildungsroman, Travel
“It’s okay not to be okay.”
The first thing you should know about Darius the Great is Not Okay is that it actually made me cry. This book is a touching story about friendship, family, and learning that being not okay is okay. The characters, the settings, the feels. I felt as if I was right there with Darius.
my favorite characters
Darius- a smol tea loving boy that struggles with depression and anxiety. I loved Darius so much, he is such a relatable boyo and I just want to give him a whole bunch of hugs. His personality is just incredible and HE TALKS ABOUT TEA ALL THE TIME ITS SO CUTE ADSKSJS.
Sohrab- ANOTHER SMOL BOYO THAT NEEDS HUGS. O my goodness they are both just beautiful and pure smol bois that need hugs. I love sorabs bubbly personality he is just such a sweet and caring guy. HE IS ALWAYS SMILING. He is just adorable and positive and just a great character
laleh- she is just such a sweet little sister that needs cookies. SHES SO CUTE SUCH A GOOD LIL SISTEER. I think she is so cute and has such a cute personality.
the writing style is SO A M A Z I N G! I mean I literally felt every feeling and emotion (did I tell you that I cried?) THE AUTHOR IS SUCH A GOOD WRITER I LOVE HIS STYLE SO MUCH. ITs ASHJDIJKDK I cannot even explain it JUST READ THE BOOK PLEASE.
