Description

When a young Muslim high school student is accused of a crime she didn't commit, her school counselor gets involved to clear her record in this ripped-from-the-headlines romantic thriller from the author of Vanished in the Night. When Lily Simon finds cops in the lobby of the high school where she's a guidance counselor, she's not surprised: cops and adolescents go together like sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. But when the cops take Jamila, a Muslim student, into custody for a crime she didn't commit, Lily's high school becomes a powder keg. Police think Jamila is responsible for a hit and run, and since she's not talking, they have no choice but to keep her as the main suspect. And since the victim-a young soldier recently returned from Afghanistan-is lying unconscious in the hospital, the whole town is taking sides on whether or not Jamila's arrest is religious persecution. Determined to find the truth, Lily teams up with a reporter to uncover what really happened the night of the hit and run. But Lily didn't expect to find such a tangled web.
