I have to say I disagree with the reviewer who says this book gets lost in the terrorism/racism elements. I found that the introduction of these issues gave an extra depth to the story that many similar books lack. This is a gripping story (I read it in one sitting) with an important message and I'd recommend it to any young fans of the action and adventure genre aswell as young readers who might be inspired to further explore the themes of how prejudice and terrorism are connected. All of which might make it sound like a bit of a heavy read - which it's absolutely not. Fast paced and enjoyable action with a heart.
