Daria Esfandyar is Iranian-American and proud of her heritage, unlike some of the "Nose Jobs" in the clique led by her former best friend, Heidi Javadi. Daria and her friends call themselves the Authentics, because they pride themselves on always keeping it real. But in the course of researching a school project, Daria learns something shocking about her past, which launches her on a journey of self-discovery. It seems everyone is keeping secrets. And it's getting harder to know who she even is any longer. With infighting among the Authentics, her mother planning an over-the-top sweet sixteen party, and a romance that should be totally off limits, Daria doesn't have time for this identity crisis. With everything in her life changing -- can she figure out how to stay true to herself?… (més)

Due to a school project Daria does a DNA test. When a DNA test shows that Daria, proud Iranian American, isn't Iranian at all she is in shock. The book takes you through the journey of self discovery with her.
The first half is enjoyable, but the book never recovers from an unearned and uncharacteristic dramatic moment of rebellion from Daria. ( )

*I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.*

The premise of this story is fascinating — a young Iranian-American girl prides herself on being “authentic” learns that she’s actually adopted, pushing her into a spiraling identity crisis. This all ties into a genealogy project she’s doing for school, and comes at a time when there are tense times between her and her friends, so she’s left feeling completely alone and lost.

I love that big publishing is starting to branch out to cover more diverse voices, giving readers a chance to find themselves in stories that feel true to their experiences. Daria is a great YA main character who simultaneously loves her family and is completely annoyed by them. She has a great group of friends who have different personalities and share inside jokes with one another all the time. And her parents, while maybe a bit out-of-touch are actually cool and responsible. Every character in this book has flaws but is still likeable, which I really appreciated. Nazemian does a great job in giving his characters a complexity that drew me into their stories.

There were some plot points that seemed incredibly coincidental and random, and therefore not believable. The way Daria found her birth mom left me with a lot of questions, but the story overall is fantastic. It touches on themes of friendship, identity, individuality, and family, of course. It especially looks at what exactly a family is made of and who can truly be considered “family.” Daria is smart, funny, and sometimes moody. Her journey to discover her true identity and figure out who she is will resonate with young and old readers alike. I definitely recommend you put this book on your shelf.
