Mina Masako Tagawa’s life is turned upside down when Japan bombs Pearl Harbor. Growing up in Seattle, she considered herself 100% American, until the people around her start telling her otherwise. Told in free-verse poems, this is the story of Mina and her family and their lives after they are sent to internment camps in Washington and Idaho. A powerful and moving story. Recommended for grades 4-8.
