Kamran Smith has all he can dream of. He is the star of the football team, he is dating the hottest girl at school, and can’t wait until he can enlist in the army, like his older brother Darius. It’s then that everything implodes in Kamran’s face. Darius is accused of being a terrorist, and Kamran is immediately rejected while at school. No one wants to be around him anymore, including Kamran’s girlfriend and his best friend. While he spend time at the DHS(Department of Homeland Security), Kamran plans to follow a set of clues Darius left for him using references from their childhood games. It has become a race against time itself. Can Kamran figure out all the clues to find out the truth and (hopefully) prove his brother’s innocence, or will the United States of America fall into a terrorist-caused collapse.
I really loved reading this book. The author writes in such a way that even those who don’t normally read this type really enjoy it. I would rate it with five stars out of five. Mature Content is rated PG because it is talking about terrorist and the problems they cause. Violence is rated PG because there is a lot of gun fights, fights, and bomb explosions.
