A novel by

 
 
"Filled with political intrigue and emotional tension, Carleson's riveting novel features a teenage refugee caught in a web of deceit and conspiracy." - PW, starred review

When her father is killed in a coup, Laila and her mother and brother leave their war-torn homeland for a fresh start in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.

At her new high school, Laila makes mistakes, makes friends, and even meets a boy who catches her eye. But this new life brings unsettling facts to light. The American newspapers call her father a brutal dictator and suggest that her family's privilege came at the expense of innocent lives. Meanwhile, her mother would like nothing more than to avenge his death, and she'll go to great lengths to regain their position of power.

As an international crisis takes shape around her, Laila is pulled in one direction, then another, but there's no time to sort out her feelings. She has to pick a side now, and her decision will affect not just her own life, but countless others. . . .

"Every American should read this book. It's an eye-opener." - Suzanne Fisher Staples, Newbery Honor - winning author of Shabanu
