Borderline by Allan Stratton (31)

This is a compelling coming of age story about acceptance and fear. It is wrapped in a fascinating adventure/thriller/mystery. All these elements are shaking mightily in this novel.

When the FBI descends in a whirlwind of Sami Sabiri’s home, Sami is shocked to find his family accused of being at the center of an international terror plot.. Now Sami’s biggest problem isn’t that he’s the only Muslim kid at school, or that he’s been suspicious of his dad for a while. Instead, everything he has ever known comes into question, and he must fight to keep his world from unraveling.

Allan Stratton delivers an explosive thriller ripped straight from today’s headlines. He writes the story with a smart and gutsy narrator at the helm. This is a compelling and relevant novel which will keep readers riveted and guessing at the truth until the very last page.

I just love coming of age stories. They capture the real feel of what it means to be young and vulnerable, with all of its angst.

I found that the scariest part of this story is that it is believable and within the realm of possibility. This is something that we all have to worry about.

What a great story!
