520    The unforgettable voice of a young refugee gives this 
       groundbreaking autobiographical its beating heart. 
       Capturing the essence of A Thousand and One Nights, from 
       middle school humiliations to wondrous Persian myths, you 
       will find one powerful narrative, united by hope for a 
       world that ought to be. At the front of a middle school 
       classroom in Oklahoma, a boy named Khosrou (whom everyone 
       calls "Daniel") stands, trying to tell a story. His story.
       But no one believes a word he says. To them he is a dark-
       skinned, hairy-armed boy with a big butt whose lunch 
       smells funny; who makes things up and talks about poop too
       much. But Khosrou's stories, stretching back years, and 
       decades, and centuries, are beautiful, and terrifying, 
       from the moment his family fled Iran in the middle of the 
       night with the secret police moments behind them, back to 
       the sad, cement refugee camps of Italy…and further back 
       to the fields near the river Aras, where rain-soaked 
       flowers bled red like the yolk of sunset burst over 
       everything, and further back still to the Jasmine-scented 
       city of Isfahan. We bounce between a school bus of kids 
       armed with paper clip missiles and spitballs to the 
       heroines and heroes of Khosrou's family's past, who ate 
       pastries that made people weep and cry "Akh, Tamar!" and 
       touched carpets woven with precious gems. Like 
       Scheherazade in a hostile classroom, Daniel weaves a tale 
       to save his own life: to stake his claim to the truth. And
       it is (a true story). It is Daniel's. Critical acclaim for
       Everything Sad Is Untrue (a true story): ★ "A modern 
       epic."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review ★ "A distinctive 
       voice. A rare treasure of a book." -Publishers Weekly, 
       starred review ★ "A story that soars. Readers will be 
       transported."-The Bulletin of the Center for Childrens 
       Books, starred review ★ "Poignant and powerful. A story 
       of heartbreak and resilience."-Foreward Reviews, starred
