So, you’re a teen looking for a good book to while away some time in the sun with, huh?

How about an award-winning autobiographical novel that’s earned accolades from notable publications such as The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal?

Still dragging your feet?

Well, what if I told you that this sometimes dangerous and often inspiring tale was delivered through Aladdin-like yarns, and that ultimately those exotic narrative layers peel away to reveal a story of faith in Jesus?

Com’on, ya gotta at least be wondering what this magical book is called, right? It’s Everything Sad is Untrue: (a true story),written by Daniel Nayeri, and it’s been said to have all of the flair of a Persian myth. You can check out our Plugged In review and see if it might be the summer carpet-ride read you’re longing for.
