Borderline by Allan Stratton

The truth is closing in.

Life's not easy for Sami Sabiri since his dad stuck him at a private school where he's the only Muslim kid. But it's about to get a lot worse.

When Sami catches his father in a lie, he gets suspicious. . . . He's not the only one. In a whirlwind, the FBI descends on his home, and Sami's family becomes the center of an international terrorist investigation. Now Sami must fight to keep his world from unraveling.

An explosive thriller ripped from today's headlines, borderline is the story of a funny, gutsy Muslim-American teen determined to save his father, his family, and his life.

When 15-year-old Mohammed "Sami" Sabiri was caught by his father sharing chocolate with Mary Louise Prescott, a hot girl from school (who wanted to share more than that with him), he's yanked out of public school and sent to an expensive private school called the Theodore Roosevelt Academy for Boys. Since then, he has not had the best relationship with his father. Sami's father cancels a planned trip with him to Toronto, but the stories don't add up and Sami starts growing suspicious of him. When a trip to Canada with his public school buddies results in his passport falling into the hands of the Canadian authorities, a raid on his house by the FBI, and his father being arrested, facts start leading towards one thing - his father being a terrorist. Soon, his life at school becomes unbearable and his mother is fired from her job, all because of the media coverage of his father's arrest. With no help from authorities and lack of a better idea, Sami decides to go undercover to prove his father's innocence. Will Sami be able to stand by his father despite the overwhelming evidence? Is his father innocent or guilty? Will his life ever be the same? BORDERLINE is an extremely suspenseful book. The characters are well-developed and purposefully constructed. The plot is fast-paced and intense. Readers who like suspense, mystery, action, and adventure will have a hard time putting this book down.
