Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-Takaki has woven together accounts from oral histories, speeches, songs, and writings to produce a lively and absorbing portrait of Asian Americans during World War II. The opening chapter outlines American involvement in the war; subsequent chapters discuss changes brought about by the war and their effect on immigrants from the Philippine Islands, Korea, India, and China. The last third of the book is devoted to the internment of civilians and exemplary military service of Japanese Americans. Set in a pleasing open format, the text is accompanied by numerous well-selected black-and-white period photographs. Pair this book, which is adapted from the author's adult title, Strangers from a Different Shore (Little, 1989), with Jerry Stanley's excellent I Am an American (Crown, 1994).-Diane S.
