By Marina Budhos

Marina Budhos' YA novel explores society's fear and suspicion of those deemed Other – most especially young Muslim men. Naeem is one, and he's always being watched — by his parents, by the neighbors, by the cops, by his little brother, by surveillance cameras. However, an arrest for shoplifting turns into an opportunity for the Watched to become the Watcher.
