Rebellions are built on hope.

Set in a horrifying near-future United States, 17-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 listeners to fight complicit silence that exists in our society today.

"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)

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
