    I enjoyed reading through this book and feel that for its relatively shorter size, it offers a good story. One of the appealing factors for me is its setting and atmosphere: I enjoyed reading about personal experiences through the eyes of a Japanese girl during/post-WWII and the tension that she must have felt in trying to fit in with her family. I think that the mannerisms described, characters of family and friends within her social circle, and the well-placed Japanese terms (especially with t [...]

    A gentle paced story reminiscent of Little House on the Prairie only it's about Japanese Canadians and the treatment they endured during the second world war. Little Kimona on the Prairie, perhaps. Evocative detailed descriptions and strong characters remaining hopeful and positive towards Canada. A beautiful telling.

    Michiko's family is struggling during World War II. Since the family was forced to leave Vancouver with the Japanese relocation, they have tried to make a new life, but it is difficult. Her mother does sewing occasionally, her father works in a drugstore, and there has been a school set up for the children. Although they are lacking electricity and books, they have the famous baseball player Kaz Katsumoto as a teacher, and he tries to rally the students together as a team. Many of the non Japane [...]

    - sequel of a 12 yr old Japanese-Canadian girl whose family was sent to New Denver during WW II- story eerily similar to my mother's experience- my mother was 11 yrs old when she was sent to Christina Lake (near New Denver)- her father also played for the Asahi baseball team and her mother also was a seamstress- rather slow but realistic story of life in a small town during the war- reading level: gr. 6- interest level: gr. 5-8 girls and those interested in J-C history

    This seemed like it had a lot of potential, but it failed to live up to my expectations. The story and characters were pleasant, but the writing wasn't terribly engaging. I think there are other books about Japanese Internment that better illustrate Japanese American experiences for kids. (Although, I'm not sure if there are too many other ones based in Canada. I'm only familiar with American ones.)
