Life can be cruel when you're a half-Egyptian, half-Irish high school student living in New Jersey. That's Ahmad Ashmawy's predicament; he's too smart for his small world and unable to contain his anger about the flawed, excessive American culture that surrounds him. Recruited by a local Shaikh, he's eventually offered an opportunity to commit a terrorist act. Ahmad's final decision--whether to detonate or not--becomes an allegory of his life. Christopher Lane, no stranger to stories of religion and terrorism (he read Charlie Wilson's War), deftly uses accents and pacing to carry this book forward with the momentum of a thriller.
