"Internment sets itself apart...terrifying, thrilling and urgent."-Entertainment Weekly

Rebellions are built on hope.

Set in a horrifying near-future United States, seventeen-year-old Layla Amin and her parents are forced into an internment camp for Muslim American citizens.

With the help of newly made friends also trapped within the internment camp, her boyfriend on the outside, and an unexpected alliance, Layla begins a journey to fight for freedom, leading a revolution against the camp's Director and his guards.

Heart-racing and emotional, Internment challenges readers to fight complicit silence that exists in our society today.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hope through the darkest times This book may be fiction, but it hits so close to home with all that's going on right now in the world, especially in the US. There are many moments when it was difficult to read, making me feel angry or disgusted because the story feels and reads true. But there is that thread of hope, and not giving up no matter the consequences, that kept me reading through to the end.
