I got this book from the library book sale a few years ago and finally got around to reading it. It was definitely an easy read, and since I tend to love historical fiction, it piqued my interests. I now want to take some time to learn more about the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII. I had just been raving the other day about how we saved the world and I tend to get irritated when we are always apologizing for being American. This book helped remind me that we have also made mistakes along the way. I want to believe that those in power were doing the best they could at the time. I cannot imagine being in their shoes and trying to protect the people at home while sending thousands of them to die overseas. War is a terrible thing.
