In this extremely timely story of a scenario that seems all too likely in today's political climate, Layla's family has been forcibly rounded up and held at an internment camp for Muslim Americans. Well written and fast paced, you'll breeze through this book quickly. The storyline wrapped up a bit too tidily in my opinion, which is where it became a tad unrealistic to me. However, as a YA novel, it makes sense. Read it!
