Jewish boy + Muslim girl = ?

All in all, a decent contemporary YA book, with heavy topics that are easily digestible by YA readers.

Suspect Red – Commies and the Red Scare

Well-researched, along with photos, headlines, and historical notes, Suspect Red is a great historical fiction read! Even though it's middle grade, I still enjoyed reading it and learned a bit more about life during the Red Scare. The historical backdrop is woven deftly throughout the story, and at the end, there's a list of resources for further reading.
