This book takes place in the future, but is definitely not an impropable future. I liked the parallels with Japanese interment camps, and the moral dilemmas involved. However, I felt like there was a big gap in this book -- it's about a kid who is being persecuted because he comes from the same country as terrorists, and it's supposed to be a book about humanizing the innocent people who are blamed for others' actions. The problem is, you get almost NO insight into the character the book is trying to humaize. The main character is a lovely girl, but I just wanted to know more about Khareem! All I know is that his name is Khareem and he's persecuted -- who is he?
