From School Library Journal: Adult/High School-While World War II brought countless changes to the lives of all Americans, perhaps none were as dramatic as those that befell Japanese Americans. Evicted from their homes and forced to live in internment camps, many felt compelled to prove their loyalty to the U.S. by enlisting in the Army and later saw rigorous combat duty in Italy. This story follows Ken Hayakawa, a college student in 1941, and his family. In other chapters, readers are introduced to the Nakamura family with two college-aged daughters, also American, but living in Japan throughout the war for business reasons. The author's research is evident through the little details that effectively bring the difficult years to life. There is plenty of action and the plot moves quickly. The dialogue is rich with Japanese terms, defined in context; Hawaiian pidgin English of Ken's Army buddies can be difficult to follow, but it adds to the realism. Battle scenes are accurate. Thought-provoking in many areas, this novel raises questions of stereotypes, prejudice, and theology and is careful to show the human strengths and weaknesses in all of the parties involved. A wonderful addition to multicultural literature.
