Review: Down and Across

Down and Across Down and Across by Arvin Ahmadi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Saaket wants to get gritty. He wants to know what makes great people get to where they are. But the problem is that his parents want the best for him--to the point of micromanaging his life. When they leave for a trip to Iran, Saaket sees this as his chance to get gritty by learning from the Georgetown professor that's an expert in it. Just like any adventure, things don't always go his way.

This is a fun book to read, not only because Saaket is reluctantly thrown into a wild ride of adventures, but because it stays grounded, no matter how much trouble Saaket's new D.C. friends try to get him into. It's a book that has a lot of heart because it's what we all go through: trying to find our purpose and our reasons for moving past all of those failures and anxieties to get there.
