    I appreciated this author s treatment of what I consider to be a silent part of America s history The attitudes of these Pacific coast families toward those of Japanese descent is challenging for the black and white thinking Laura Her method of helping her friends to see the truth was genius, and the resolution was very satisfying This is a great read for middle school girls.

    Previewed this for my little sister It had some good history, and a few worthy mentions of God, but I didn t agree with its representation of some political things including FDR s presidency.

    Good portrayal of the conflicting messages about Americans with foreign backgrounds during WWII.

    I spotted this series in our School Library and since I am quite interested in WW2 i picked this one It was quite interesting, a little boring at the end but still kinda exciting.
