Book Musings: Darius the Great is Not Okay

August 25 2019:

Darius the Great is Not Okay by Adib Khorram

This is another on the list of young adult and juvenile fiction books which speaks to mental health. In my original search for these types of books, I think I came across about ten books that addressed this. Looks like we need more. Especially in the juvenile section. I’ve read two of them now.

I would like to find a book or two that addresses any holistic or non-pharmaceutical means of addressing the mental health issues discussed (in addition to the pharmaceutical as needed).

I enjoyed reading this book and getting to know the characters. There were times I did not want to stop reading; but was so sleepy I had to put it down. Being a Star Trek fan, I really loved all the Star Trek references and that Darius and his dad are huge fans.
