Told from the perspective of 7 year-old Jeanne Wakatsuki, readers can really see what it was like growing up in a concentration camp during World War 2.
"A heart-wrenching story about a young Japanese-American girl struggling to keep her family together and discover herself, all while growing up in a concentration camp"

"A sorrowful yet enjoyable story filled with drunk fights, baton twirling, rock gardens, uprisings, and even a whole chapter dedicated to proper bathroom use. Definitely worth the read!"
