Layla Amin knew things weren't going to go well, when they had to put on the census that they were Muslim, essentially creating a registry. Soon, Muslims around the country were put on restrictions for jobs, curfews and more. It all came to a head when Layla and her family were arrested and taken to Mobius, the first internment camp for Muslims.
Set in the very near future, this book examines the what-if's of our current society. Some parts hit very close to home and the author, Samira Ahmed, did not shy away from controversial subjects. It was intense, heartbreaking and at times a little too close to our present-day circumstances. A must read for those who are culturally aware of our state as a nation.
