Here is what Bustle has to say about THE AUTHENTICS:

“The Authentics” is her book’s title, but it’s also the concept Abdi Nazemian seeks to subvert and re-imagine in her story. Iranian-American Daria Esfandyar and her friends call themselves “the Authentics” because they’re proud of their heritage — in contrast to the “Nose Job” Persian girl clique in her high school.

Nazemian’s funny and wholly thought-provoking novel explores culture, family, and how we choose to define ourselves.
