Review: Set just six months after 9/11, a 15-year-old British boy of Pakistani and Turkish descent reluctantly visits family in Pakistan. There he is mistaken as an enemy combatant, kidnapped and taken to Guantanamo Bay. How private are online computer games? What will be done in the name of national security? How important is family? This book puts a face on the prisoners of Guantanamo and is a must read for teens.
