Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-- Frank wishes his family had never moved to Hawaii. He has no friends and the local boys taunt him as a haoli , an outsider. When Kenji, a Japanese-American boy, offers friendship, they discover a lot in common, especially a love of baseball. The two boys are in Frank's tree house overlooking Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, where they watch with fascination and horror as ship after ship is blown up in the water. Conflicting messages and rumors being broadcast over the radio serve as a background for confusion as people react to the emergency. An effective snapshot of the past, this book presents a realistic picture of what residents of Honolulu experienced on that fateful day. --Phyllis K. Kennemer, Jefferson County School District, Lakewood, CO
