Three brothers grapple with their American and Iranian identities when their father snatches them from their LA home to go back to Iran. A sizzling novel of youth, of yearning, of identity, and what you need from family in the molten years of childhood. Lyrical and raw. - Rory

A searing, sunlit debut about the powerful bonds that make and break one Iranian-American family. Three young brothers leave Los Angeles in the dead of night for Iran, taken by their father from their mother to a country and an ancestral home they barely recognize. They return to the Valley months later, spit back into American life and changed in inexorable ways. Under the dazzling light of the California sun, our protagonist, the youngest brother, begins to piece together a childhood shattered by his father's violence, a queer adolescence marked by a shy, secret love affair with a boy he meets on the basketball court, and his ever-changing status as a Muslim in America at the turn of the new millennium.
