Teen Tuesday and Audiobook Review: Internment by Samira Ahmed

Teen Tuesday features Internment by Samira Ahmed. This powerful and prescient first-person novel is set in the near-future and is narrated by seventeen-year-old Layla Amin. Two and a half year after the election of an Islamophobic president, Muslim Americans are stripped of their property and rights and are relocated to internment camps. Resistance results in the individual being "disappeared." Defying her parents plea to stay quiet and follow the rules, Layla finds likeminded friends and ways to resist. Utterly believable and exquisitely suspenseful, Internment will astound.
