I would definitely recommend this story to an adolescent male who thinks they don't like to read. It's fast-paced, engaging and unpredictable.
At first, I thought it was going to just be a story about a boy who had to deal with the aftermath of having a brother labelled as a terrorist. But then the story became more of an adventure and had an Alex Rider feel to it as Kamran was catapulted into trying to help discover the truth about his brother. Loved the action and the thrills in this story even though I did find much of it quite unbelievable. The idea of a seventeen year old participating alongside an elite strike team was hard to imagine but I think young boys will enjoy it nonetheless. ( )

Kamran Smith is a typical American high school achiever: football team star, dating popular girl, preparing to apply to military academy after graduation, and.... he's also half Iranian. His brother Darius, US Army Ranger, serves in Afghanistan, but suddenly appears on a series of videos, making terrorist threats against America. Kamran is stunned: either his brother "turned" and became a radical Muslim helping Al Qaeda, or he's been captured and used as a pawn to broadcast their serious threats. Dept of Homeland Security visits their home, the media descends, his military academy recommend is rescinded, and then all three: mom, dad and Kamran are put into isolated custody, grilled by the CIA, etc. This drastic gov't response was the first "huh??" for me; would this be the real response of our gov't to Americans' civil rights - detaining all three (including a minor) for months?? But the plot moves forward nonetheless.
Kamran stubbornly believes his brother has NOT been "turned" and is determined to clear his name; when he re-watches the videos, he begins to hear messages, code words that only he, little brother, would recognize from their childhood, playing "kill the bad guys" scenarios. One agent begins to listen to Kamran, and together they begin to scrutinize every video sent out, passing on clues to DHS, & other authorities. Action packed scenes follow in one chapter after another,as Kamran becomes part of a team effort by undercover DHS agents to foil the plots of this terrorist group AND try to locate & rescue his brother. Read and enjoyed several of Alan Gratz's books, but his over-dependence on narrator interior dialogue, esp questions, begins to drag down the exposition. The unreal escapades, escapes, and involvement of a 17 yr old boy with strike teams, escaping a top security site, etc becomes unbelievable but will certainly be a thrilling story to many a middle school/high school reader, with a satisfying conclusion.

Totally unbelievable, but 100% enjoyable and fast paced. I can definitely see this book being popular with teens. Kamran has it all, he's a a football star, homecoming king, and has a smoking hot girlfriend. But that all comes crashing down when his older brother joins up with terrorists. He had been in the military but suddenly he's on the news making demands, condemning the US, and standing by while an innocent journalist is beheaded. Everyone writes him off, except for his brother. Kamran is convinced that his brother is giving him hints in the video and that he's being held hostage. Instead of being at high school, Kamran is now working with the US government and trying to get them believe that his brother is innocent. But will it be enough? Can they rescue him and stop the terrorists before they kill people? Short chapters, fast paced, and deals with hard themes like culture, religion, and judging others who are different from us. Surprisingly good! ( )

This was a page turner and whether the brother was good or evil was a mystery to the end. The book did feel a little too "politically correct" but that's in keeping with the age group it's intended for. I do like that Gratz doesn't go into gory detail. He makes this book a safe choice for middle school. Many are using this book as a book club choice. ( )
