One of Us by Jeannie Waudby
I was intrigued by the description of the book and was expecting it to be more like this: someone from a fundamentalist sect ends up in our society and comes to realize that things are not as bad as she had been led to believe. However, this book is not a bit different starting with the fact that the main character goes into the religious group. It was never entirely clear to me whether the Brotherhood actually did have terrorists or if that was all just fear mongering on the part of mainstream society. I think that a good deal of the book moves a bit slowly but once K goes to the rally with Oskar, things are fast-paced and exciting.
