"Living in Rochdale and every thing is just perfect... but then again, i'm a Muslim..."
Life in Rochdale can't get any better for 15 year old Khalid; he enjoys playing football, video-games, and has a crush on a girl at his school. One day as Khalid returns home from school, he finds himself alone, (his family must be out somewhere around town.) He rushes downstairs to his computer and starts chatting with his best friend. But when he returns up stairs to get something, he isn't reunited with his family... but instead, several large men with bandannas covering their faces break into the house. Khalid is stunned, they tackle him to the ground and they tie his hands and legs with chains and cuffs. Draping his head over with a black bag, he is thrown in the back of a truck smelling of gasoline and petroleum. After a while of driving he is taken of of the van and thrown into a dark room, with a slightly dimmed light on the ceiling. Khalid was completely confused, and he was continuously asking what he has done wrong, and why they are treating him like this.
As he sits down on the only chair in the room he stares into the light and looks around the room until a person comes in and brings him food. "Finally," he thinks and starts to grab for the food... But as he does, he sees an officer sitting in front of him watching him eat. WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? Khalid is becoming more confused, but after he is done eating he is forced back into his handcuffs and left alone in the room again.
Khalid is then taken to another cell, again he is shackled cuffed and deprived of the right to see anything. As he is taken to his new "home," an interrogator comes in and starts asking THE questions.
"Are you a terrorist... Who are you working for..."
Khalid is awestruck by the questions they were asking. "I'm not a terrorist," he would say. After arguing and saying that he had no part in anything that they were accusing him of, they stopped. Khalid was then left to stay in his cell, looking at all the others now with him. They were all separated from each other, in their own cells, as they are being watched.
Again Khalid is taken, shackled, hooded... and put in a truck. Wait, no... it wasn't a truck it was a plane. Next Stop, Guantanamo Bay. Did i tell you how Khalid got into this mess. It all started with a game called bomber-one, that Tariq his best friend made. Now these people thought that they were terrorists, hatching some type of plan of some sort to cause havoc.
Now Khalid is in Guantanamo, he is suffering of mental stress, and is being badly harmed. Is there a chance for his to escape this treachery...
I recommend this book to anyone that likes to read and learn about things that are happening around the world. This book is based on true events, and it is FICTION (let me know if i'm wrong)
