Code of Honor by Alan Gratz
I listened to the audio version of this book and it was very well done! The story is compelling and realistic. Kamran is a senior in high school and plans to go to West Point and then into the army like his older brother Darius did. After Darius is accused of being a terrorist and is seen on film with terrorists, Kamran and his parents are kidnapped by the US government and taken to a secret facility and interrogated - for months. Kamran is sure that Darius is not a terrorist and is being held captive against his will. He sees clues in the films that Darius shares that no one but Kamran would understand. Can he convince the government that his brother is not a terrorist and can he help stop the terrorist plot before it is too late? This book won the Texas Lone Star Book award and it is totally excellent!
