In the eyes of the West, the Arab Spring is over. For Alwaleed, struggling in a society that condemns him as an illegitimate son, the ongoing political unrest offers him a chance to prove himself.

Upon leaving university--vulnerable and uncertain--he is an easy target for the recruiters, and eventually finds himself fighting the Syrian regime.

But is he fighting for what he believes in? Set in Jordan and Syria following the Arab Spring, IN THE HOPE OF VIRGINS is a coming-of-age story amidst the growing power of ISIS and the crumbling of the old Arab regimes.
