No one wants to feel unwelcome in a place they’ve always called home. This novel takes the reader on a journey alongside a group of Japanese American friends following the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Both beautiful and heartbreaking, this story is a great way to see new perspectives on this bit of history. The fourteen teenagers who create their own family and community are what make this book so personal.
Daunis has everything planned out, until people in her community start dying mysteriously - including her Uncle David. She soon finds herself roped into the FBI investigation surrounding these strange occurrences. She will have to make some big decisions while working to keep her two new realities separate. I was taken by surprise by the wealth of topics and emotions covered in this riveting story. This debut will have you on the edge of your seat!
