A timely, nonstop action-adventure about the War on Terror - and a family torn apart. When 17-year-old Iranian American Kamran Smith learns that his brother has been labeled a terrorist, he knows something isn't right. In a race against time, it is up to Kamran to prove his brother's innocence, even as the country has turned against him and his family.
With the help of a ragtag team of underground intelligence professionals, Kamran must piece together the clues and the codes that will save his brother's life - and save his country from possibly the largest terrorist attack since 9/11. Acclaimed author Alan Gratz takes listeners on a nonstop action-adventure journey through the emotional, political, and cultural landscape of the War on Terror while weaving a poignant tale of two brothers.

If you can suspend your thoughts about how realistic this is, the story is great and celebrates the bond of siblings, explores patriotism and what that means, and exposes how easy it is to believe the media. Perfect for YA, and the action-packed story had me eagerly listening to find out what would happen next!
