Beschreibung

A timely, nonstop action-adventure about the War on Terror--and a family torn apart.

When seventeen-year-old Iranian American Kamran Smith learns that his brother has been labeled a terrorist, he knows something isn't right. In a race against time, it is up to Kamran to prove his brother's innocence, even as the country has turned against him and his family. With the help of a ragtag team of underground intelligence professionals, Kamran must piece together the clues and the codes that will save his brother's life--and save his country from possibly the largest terrorist attack since 9/11.

Acclaimed author Alan Gratz takes readers on a nonstop action-adventure journey through the emotional, political, and cultural landscape of the War on Terror, while weaving a poignant tale of two brothers.

    Kameron Smith, loves football, has a great girlfriend, great best friend, and is working like super hard to get into West Point. Like your average senior. Until one day his bro has claimed (literally claimed) to be a terrorist and his hold world flips. He knows in his gut that his brother is not a terrorist a decided that he has to prove him innocent. Evan if that means getting himself killed in the act.

    “Code of Honor” was a great book. It was filled with lots of emotion, betrayal, murder, and gives you a great perspective of what a Iran person life would be like after a terrorist attack.

    I would definitely recommend this story to an adolescent male who thinks they don't like to read. It's fast-paced, engaging and unpredictable. At first, I thought it was going to just be a story about a boy who had to deal with the aftermath of having a brother labelled as a terrorist. But then the story became more of an adventure and had an Alex Rider feel to it as Kamran was catapulted into trying to help discover the truth about his brother. Loved the action and the thrills in this story even though I did find much of it quite unbelievable. The idea of a seventeen year old participating alongside an elite strike team was hard to imagine but I think young boys will enjoy it nonetheless.

    Kamran Smith is a typical American high school achiever: football team star, dating popular girl, preparing to apply to military academy after graduation, and.... he's also half Iranian. His brother Darius, US Army Ranger, serves in Afghanistan, but suddenly appears on a series of videos, making terrorist threats against America. Kamran is stunned: either his brother "turned" and became a radical Muslim helping Al Qaeda, or he's been captured and used as a pawn to broadcast their serious threats. Dept of Homeland Security visits their home, the media descends, his military academy recommend is rescinded, and then all three: mom, dad and Kamran are put into isolated custody, grilled by the CIA, etc. This drastic gov't response was the first "huh??" for me; would this be the real response of our gov't to Americans' civil rights - detaining all three (including a minor) for months?? But the plot moves forward nonetheless. Kamran stubbornly believes his brother has NOT been "turned" and is determined to clear his name; when he re-watches the videos, he begins to hear messages, code words that only he, little brother, would recognize from their childhood, playing "kill the bad guys" scenarios. One agent begins to listen to Kamran, and together they begin to scrutinize every video sent out, passing on clues to DHS, & other authorities. Action packed scenes follow in one chapter after another,as Kamran becomes part of a team effort by undercover DHS agents to foil the plots of this terrorist group AND try to locate & rescue his brother. Read and enjoyed several of Alan Gratz's books, but his over-dependence on narrator interior dialogue, esp questions, begins to drag down the exposition. The unreal escapades, escapes, and involvement of a 17 yr old boy with strike teams, escaping a top security site, etc becomes unbelievable but will certainly be a thrilling story to many a middle school/high school reader, with a satisfying conclusion.

    Totally unbelievable, but 100% enjoyable and fast paced. I can definitely see this book being popular with teens. Kamran has it all, he's a a football star, homecoming king, and has a smoking hot girlfriend. But that all comes crashing down when his older brother joins up with terrorists. He had been in the military but suddenly he's on the news making demands, condemning the US, and standing by while an innocent journalist is beheaded. Everyone writes him off, except for his brother. Kamran is convinced that his brother is giving him hints in the video and that he's being held hostage. Instead of being at high school, Kamran is now working with the US government and trying to get them believe that his brother is innocent. But will it be enough? Can they rescue him and stop the terrorists before they kill people? Short chapters, fast paced, and deals with hard themes like culture, religion, and judging others who are different from us. Surprisingly good!

    If you like thrilling, suspenseful novels, you’ll want to read this one.Kamron has a great life until he gets home and his brother is on video attacking American targets as a terrorist. Yes, they are Iranian, but they are totally Americans and created a code of honor by which both he and Darius, his brother, live by, which is to help others and be brave. Now, Kamron is an outcast because they are obviously part of a sleeper cell bent on destroying America.One night, the US government invades Kamron’s home and take him, his mom, and his dad. He doesn’t see them for months while he is interrogated daily. More videos come in with Darius talking terrorist jihad, but Kamron notices a code. He is convinced Darius is not a terrorist, so he describes the code to Homeland Security. In a race against time, Kamron must convince Homeland Security that Darius is following a Code of Honor and would never betray the United States as well as convince them that he’s sending messages of a big future attack. If they don’t believe him, he’ll have to take matters into his own hands.This is a fast-paced, entertaining book that I recommend strongly. I’ll admit there’s nothing original in the novel--I’ve read enough political thrillers that I knew what was about to happen the entire time, but it’s still a thrilling read. It’s also timely in that many people are assumed to be terrorist because of their heritage, so this novel attacks that theory as well.

    Narrated by Dan Bittner. Timely suspense fiction for young teens. Kamran and his family find themselves the national target of anger and suspicion when his older brother Darius is accused of being a terrorist. The boys' mother is from Iran, further adding to the ire. This covers a number of themes: loyalty, doubt, prejudice, and perseverance most prominently. The thoughtful reader will align Kamran's story with current events and perhaps consider what other stories lie under the surface.

    I thought this was supposed to be realistic fiction, but it was too unbelievable, even for my imagination.
