General fiction (Children's / Teenage)

New York Times bestselling author Samira Ahmed (LOVE, HATE AND OTHER FILTERS) fights against Islamophobia and complicit silence in a novel about a futuristic internment camp for fans of THE HANDMAID'S TALE.

Set in a horrifying 'fifteen minutes in the future' United States, seventeen-year-old Layla Amin is forced into an internment camp for Muslim-Americans along with her parents.

With the help of newly-made friends also trapped within the camp, her boyfriend on the outside, and an unexpected alliance, Layla begins a journey to fight for freedom, leading a revolution against the internment camp's Director and his guards.

Heart-racing and emotional, INTERNMENT questions the imaginary boundaries that separate us and challenges readers to fight the complicit silence that exists in our society today.

Praise for Internment

  • Samira has created a chilling, powerful, all-too-real near future that's a must-read for everyone's TBR. - Karen M. McManus, author of One Of Us Is Lying

  • A timely YA novel set in a terrifying 'fifteen minutes in the future' USA . . . In a world that's constantly creating boundaries and walls between races, religions and nations, Internment is a powerful and relevant book that reads less like a piece of fiction and more a scarily plausible future scenario. Yet what should resonate with readers is the hope at the heart of the tale. If you enjoyed The Hate U Give, this should be at the top of your TBR pile when March rolls around. - CultureFly

  • Chillingly plausible, a story of hate ultimately becomes one of hope as Ahmed challenges readers to fight the complicit silence of racism. - The Bookseller, Ones to Watch

  • Very timely . . . A rallying call against the complicity of silence on modern racism - Independent

  • [A] magnetic novel . . . this is a story that seems uncomfortably prescient in these uncertain times, but it's also one of hope and resistance. Author Ahmed is proving herself to be a YA gem. - Stylist magazine

  • A tremendous novel. - the Guardian

  • Chillingly plausible - Financial Times
