Totally unbelievable, but 100% enjoyable and fast paced. I can definitely see this book being popular with teens. Kamran has it all, he's a a football star, homecoming king, and has a smoking hot girlfriend. But that all comes crashing down when his older brother joins up with terrorists. He had been in the military but suddenly he's on the news making demands, condemning the US, and standing by while an innocent journalist is beheaded. Everyone writes him off, except for his brother. Kamran is convinced that his brother is giving him hints in the video and that he's being held hostage. Instead of being at high school, Kamran is now working with the US government and trying to get them believe that his brother is innocent. But will it be enough? Can they rescue him and stop the terrorists before they kill people? Short chapters, fast paced, and deals with hard themes like culture, religion, and judging others who are different from us. Surprisingly good! ( )

This was a page turner and whether the brother was good or evil was a mystery to the end. The book did feel a little too "politically correct" but that's in keeping with the age group it's intended for. I do like that Gratz doesn't go into gory detail. He makes this book a safe choice for middle school. Many are using this book as a book club choice. ( )

This book surprised me in how much I liked it. At it's root, this book is about the relationship between brothers and the history that binds them together. The action flows easily from page to page, carrying the reader along with it. This is definitely one to try out! ( )

I thought this was supposed to be realistic fiction, but it was too unbelievable, even for my imagination. ( )

And then everything implodes.

Darius is accused of being a terrorist. Kamran refuses to believe it, but the evidence is there -- Darius has been filmed making threats against his country, hinting at an upcoming deadly attack. Kamran's friends turn on him -- suddenly, in their eyes, he's a terrorist, too.

But is it a truth Kamran is ready to face? And is he putting his own life at risk?
