Told sparsely from the point of few of 12 year old Sumiko, this story is one to remember.

I loved this book. I like that it addressed the relationship between Japanese Americans and Native Americans during the internment. Sumiko's friendship with Frank was a powerful example of allyship and making connections across differences. I loved the characters in this book, from her Tak-Tak to Jiachan, I thought each one was thoughtfully developed. A great book I definitely plan on using in my future classrooms!

One of few book's that touches on a sad part of our countries heritage, Japanese internment. But don't be turned off by this. You will love the main character and her journey to discover who she truly is.

This book is about a young girl and her family post WW2 bombing of Pearl Harbor. It is a very good read. I have enjoyed it a lot, and recommend it.
