Reviews

Ahmed keeps the tension mounting as Layla faces increasingly violent consequences for her actions; the teenagers' relationships are depicted authentically, and their strength and resistance are inspiring. An unsettling and important book for our times.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Ahmed has gifted us Layla, a courageous young revolutionary who fights against all boundaries of hate and ignorance. A must read for activists who continue to push back against the big What-Ifs.

-- "Ibi Zoboi, National Book Award finalist and author of American Street"

A testament to what girls are capable of when they are overlooked, Internment is a masterwork of dignity and grit.

-- "E. K. Johnston, author of Exit, Pursued by a Bear"

This is a poignant, necessary story that paints a very real, very frank picture of hatred and ignorance, while also giving readers and marginalized individuals hope. It emphasizes that the oppressed have a voice and the power to speak up and fight back, while also reminding us that all citizens have the obligation, responsibility, and power to raise their voices and defend their fellow citizens from mistreatment or abuse.
