Internment

Amazon.com: Internment (9780316522694): Ahmed, Samira: BooksSilence is Violence was the theme for this emotional book. “If we stay silent, whats next?”

This was a crazy read. It is eerily relevant and totally frightening to imagine. Set in a dystopian future where Muslims are herded into internment camps because of the racist president’s Islamophobia, our main character fights for freedom using the only thing she has left: her voice. I liked so much about this book, because it was very realistic and illustrate the consequences if we as a people become complacent and stop fighting for our rights.

*SPOILER* The ONLY thing I didn’t like about this was the undeveloped “connection” between Layla and Jake. I just felt like he came out of nowhere, and there was no actual common ground between them (other than the fact that they were both at the camp.) For a romance it was completely out of the blue and made no sense! It was just a very shallow connection and I wasn’t into it. Team David all the way.
