What a good book , thoroughly enjoyed it . One of those you hate to see end but can't wait to see how it ends . The ending was different than what I expected . But spoiler alert -- I am not giving the ending away . Read this book yourself . Actually it gives some depth and insight to the conditions that the American Japanese experienced after the bombing of Pearl Harbor . The injustices of that time . Well written and would recommend it if you like war related novels of that era . It's a YA book but don't discount this book due to that category . There are many books to be enjoyed by adults in the YA section and this is one of them .
