Life's not easy for Sami Sabiri, a funny, gutsy fifteen-year-old stuck at a private school where he's the only Muslim kid. But things are about to get a lot worse.

When Sami catches his father in a lie, he gets suspicious . . . and he's not the only one. In a flash, the FBI descends on his home and Sami's family becomes the center of an international terrorist investigation. Now, as his world unravels, Sami must find a way to save his father, his family, and his life.

Review:

“The story reaches a fist-clenching pinnacle before a conclusion that should defy readers’ expectations. It’s a powerful story and excellent resource for teaching tolerance, with a message that extends well beyond the timely subject matter.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“A tautly paced thriller. This is a great read. Once it finds its way into the hands of teens, word of mouth will ensure that it circulates.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“Tense and compelling. A fast, exciting read with weighty underpinnings.” (Booklist)

“Stratton explodes with political relevance. [A] vitally education page-turner.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“The book is fast-paced suspense. A timely addition to YA lit about Muslim Americans, this will find an audience among those hungry for insight or commiseration.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“A compelling coming–of–age novel about acceptance and fear, wrapped in a fascinating adventure/thriller/mystery. All these elements are shaken mightily in Allan Stratton’s latest—as we are.” (Gary D. Schmidt, New York Times bestselling and Printz and Newbery Honor author)

“Allan Stratton spins these otherwise ordinary lives on a dime and a secret. Borderline is as astonishing as it is all quite possible.” (Rita Williams–Garcia, Newbery Honor author and National Book Award finalist)

“Smart, meticulously plotted, and thrilling. The scariest thing about Borderline is how utterly believable it is.” (Tim Wynne-Jones, author of the Uninvited)

“A thrilling suspense story. Sami’s quest to clear his father’s name will carry readers along for an exciting ride.” (BookPage)
