Summary :

A turbulent, emotionally charged YA novel that breaks down barriers and challenges the status quo...

Angry, seventeen-year-old Iraqi war refugee Mirriam Yohanna hates her new life in Killeen, Texas, where the main attraction is a military base, populated with spoiled army brats like Caleb Miller. 

Caleb has much to be angry about too, including Mirriam who turns him down flat in front of everyone. Eager for retribution, Caleb agrees to a dare that will see him take Mirriam to the prom and regain his pride. 

But their relationship soon moves beyond high school antics. Mirriam and Caleb are bound together by more than location, and as they are forced to work closely together on a school assignment, they start to uncover an explosive story that has the potential to ruin lives — and both of their futures. One single truth changes everything and strengthens their bond. 
When Mirriam's family discovers their relationship, they decide it's time to arrange her marriage to a proper Iraqi man. Caleb must convince Mirriam that he is in it for forever — or risk losing her for good.

Review :

A Missing Peace by Beth Fred is a YA novel is set in the military town of Killeen, Texas and revolves around the lives of Caleb Miller, a young army brat and Mirriam Yohanna , an angry, seventeen-year-old Iraqi war refugee who hates her new life in Killeen. Caleb believes his dad was killed by an Iraqi terrorist during the war. Mirriam saw her father gunned down by an American soldier..how will their story proceed?

On their first meeting Mirriam turns Caleb down in front of everyone, so in order to regain his pride and status, he makes a bet with his friends that Mirriam will go to prom with him.I loved this because the more time these two spend together, the more the chemistry between them develops. Yet they have so much working against them. The contrast and the conflict works really well in the story and heighten the bond that develops between Caleb and Mirriam.

 The character of Mirriam is not easy to understand at first, but as I kept turning the pages and started getting more in the story, I could understand her character sketch. Caleb was much easier to understand. A Missing Peace is not a smooth and straightforward story; you will find many conflicts on the road to happily after ever.
Overall, this was a really good novel, has a great plot, the chemistry and pace were just great and add to that the cover, it couln't be more perfect for this story.

Rating : 4/5 Stars
