about


Life’s not easy for Sami Sabiri, especially since his dad stuck him at a private boys’ school where he’s the only Muslim kid. But it’s about to get a whole lot worse.
      When Sami catches his father in a lie, he gets suspicious. Unfortunately, he’s not the only one. In a whirlwind, the FBI and RCMP descend, and Sami suddenly finds his family at the centre of an international terror plot. Everything he’s ever known comes into question as Sami fights to keep his world from unravelling.
      Borderline is an action-packed page-turner about loyalty and identity, starring a funny and gutsy 15-year-old determined to save his father, his family and his life.

Editorial Reviews

"Printz Honor?winner Stratton (Chanda's Secrets) explores the genesis of and fallout from racial and religious discrimination in this thriller about a Muslim boy's life, which is turned on its head when his father is accused of collaborating with Islamic terrorists in a plot to contaminate the water supplies in New York City and Toronto....It's a powerful story and excellent resource for teaching tolerance, with a message that extends well beyond the timely subject matter."-Publisher's Weekly (starred review) ()
