9780312384555: In the Name of God

They talked about doing things, of course, these macho cousins and uncles of mine. But nothing happens. God did not reward the Muslims for waiting in patience while the Unbelievers picked them off one by one, did He? God helps she who helps herself, she who helps the Muslims. Someone has to take control, right? I've already decided that someone will be me.

Nadia is an excellent student, daughter, and sister, living in Damascus, Syria. Above all, she strives to walk the straight path and follow the laws of Islam. But she's confused by the world around her and how she fits into it. She's conflicted about her Westernized cousins, the internal struggles of her country, and the war raging in Iraq. When her cousin is arrested by Syrian authorities for speaking out―betrayed by someone in the family―Nadia finds herself drawn into the dark world of Islamic fundamentalism. And she's about to face the biggest decision of her life.

About the Author:

Paula Jolin spent most of the last decade living and working in the Middle East. She has a masters degree in Islamic Studies and has written a number of non-fiction articles about Islam and the Arab world that have appeared in national children's magazines, including Calliope and New Moon: The Magazine for Girls and Their Dreams. She is also a reviewer for BookReporter.com and TeenReads.com.

From Booklist:

Set in contemporary Damascus, Jolin's debut novel is a groundbreaking story of a Syrian teen drawn into Islamic Fundamentalism. Seventeen-year-old Nadia is surrounded by devout Muslim family members, but it's her cousin Fowzi who becomes a role model for her increasingly hard-line religious and political views. Then Fowzi is arrested for speaking out against the government, and Nadia's urgency to carry her beliefs into action leads to her recruitment in a radical group. When she is asked to become a suicide bomber, she agrees. Jolin's novel is certainly provocative, but at times the story reads like a docu-novel: carefully inserted historical and cultural facts occasionally interrupt the narrative, and the characters' religious and political debates sometimes seem purposefully calibrated to show as may viewpoints as possible. However, there are very few novels for young people that give such a comprehensive sense of a contemporary Muslim Arab teen's daily life and concerns. Writing with compassion and sensitivity, Jolin shows the volatile mix of vulnerabilities, passions, anger, fear, yearning, and devotion that pulls Nadia toward her shocking choices, which culminate in a heart-stopping ending. In framing Nadia's questions about faith, Jolin creates an essential starting place for teens to examine their own views about Western culture, the Middle East, the division of church and state, terrorism, and how fear and hate, faith and love affect everything. Cathryn Clinton's A Stone in My Hand (2002) and Naomi Shihab Nye's 19 Varieties of Gazelle (2002) will continue the discussion. Gillian Engberg
