Very interesting if you are interested in history. I found it quite enlightening. it made me sorry that those people had to endure the hardships we placed on them.

I found this book both compelling and an "easy read". I swallowed it on a long train ride. And then loaned it to a friend who found it equally compelling.
The book provides a very personal account of the effects of the United States' decision to intern thousands of innocent Japanese Americans during WWI from the eyes of an eleven-year-old in a tightly knit family, the destruction of family ties because of the internship, the destruction of her father's mental and physical health and his role as head of the family, and the lasting impact on her long after the family's release.
This book should be required reading for all 8th or 9th graders, college students, anyone whether or not they have some familiarity with the internship of those of Japanese heritage during WWI.
