I was on a print book hiatus when Internment came off of hold at the library. I felt that it was too important a topic to sleep on (both literally and figuratively) so I read it during my commute to and from work for a week (rest assured that I wasn’t driving).
From Amazon, here’s a synopsis:
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 internment camp’s Director and his guards.
Heart-racing and emotional, Internment challenges readers to fight complicit silence that exists in our society today.
I somehow managed to delete my TBR entry for Internment before writing this post, but most likely, I heard about it on Instagram. Here’s what I thought.
