I picked up this book because I'm interested in the history of Japanese internment during World War II, and because the art is beautiful and engrossing.

This book would be useful in the classroom for talking about issues of feeling caught between two cultures without belonging fully to either, as well as the possibility of peer pressure suppressing one's core values. It could also be handy for discussing institutional racism in the United States within living memory, and how easy it is for members of a minority group to be feared and stereotyped by the majority with the support of government.

This is the first graphic novel I have read and I thought it was really good. First I like that the story is written in dialogue format. The conversations between the characters is what drives the story. "My husband is NOT a spy!" "That remains to be seen." I also enjoy the illustrations by this author; he is able to capture the movement of the characters making it seem realistic. "I'll give you something to cry about." Jo punches Koji and there are lines indicating Koji's head falling backwards. Overall this graphic novel tells of one boy's bravery as he faces discrimination in an internment camp as he tries to understand his heritage. ( )

I Loved this book! The only thing that could have made it better is if Koji was based on a real person. Mary's account would have made a wonderful read (the real person). However, I think this book did a great job of especially addressing the racism that was attached to the Japanese during WWII in America, which in many cases was worse in itself than the internment camps that these people were sent to. It addressed sensitive issues honestly as well as delicately and the illustrations were beautiful, I would expect nothing less from Disney Publishing. I loved how they included a short biography of the Japanese and the real family who this was based off of as a picture, it gives children even more authenticity as to the fact that these events and feelings were really happening to children, teens, and adults during this turbulent time period in American history.
