Set in a horrifying 'fifteen minutes in the future' United States, seventeen-year-old Layla Amin is forced into an internment camp for Muslim-Americans along with her parents.

With the help of newly-made friends also trapped within the 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 questions the imaginary boundaries that separate us and challenges readers to fight the complicit silence that exists in our society today.

Reviews for Internment

A riveting and cautionary tale. Internment urges us to speak up and speak out, to ask questions and demand answers, and when those answers prove unsatisfactory, to resist * Stacey Lee, award-winning author of Outrun the Moon * A testament to what girls are capable of when they are overlooked, Internment is a masterwork of dignity and grit. * E.K. Johnston, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Exit, Pursued by a Bear * A powerful and poignant exploration of a nightmare made real. It's a testament to Ahmed's writing then, that the heart of the story is one of hope. Read INTERNMENT. Raise a fist. * David Arnold, New York Times bestselling author of Mosquitoland *
