Amir is eighteen years old and he is just trying to get home when security interrogates him. The story than goes ten months prior to explain everything that has happened up until his family goes to Rome. From Amir meeting the cute boy Jackson who he soon starts to develop a crush on. Amir is one of the few senior transfers at his new school and is the only boy out of the transfers. Amir learns that him and Jackson are not so different after all. Both boys believe they do not fit in with anyone else at their school.
This book was very eye opening on what others go through on a regular basis. Amir is a teen Muslim boy who's story shows what he has to go through just for being Muslim.
