injustice and overcoming obstacles

After the attack on pearl harbor every japenesse american was branded as a traitor even though they were American born.
The most exciting part of the book was when Jeanne and her family finally got out of the camps. They finally got away from the pain and suffering of being in confinement in the camps. Even though she feels like she lost her childhood due to the camps she is very relieved that shes out.
Flashback- "Yet neither would i have been surprised to find the FBI at my door again.(151)

Imagery- "Our living conditions were so bad we looked liked we lived in a barn."(94)

I would recommend the book because you can see how people lived in the concentration camps. I think a person who is into historical stuff would like this book.
