I am a high school sophomore and I choose to read this book for my research project about Japanese Internment Camps.  I think this book had a little too much information as far as background information. Unlike other memorials that go straight into the topic , this memorial describes more then just Japanese Internment Camps. Since the book is divided into three sections in which only one  section talks about Japanese Internment American camps, it made reading for me a waste of time. But when the author did describe the  conditions of Japanese Americans in internment camps, I was shock to find out how much agony these innocent people were going through. The author uses a German family as his way to describe what struggles internees went through in their barracks and in the  camp. Then the last section was about the aftermath of the result of internment camps during World War one in America, such as the  fact that years after the internment camps, the president at the time tries to apologize By sending a letter and giving money to the people  who lost their businesses and farms . But overall the author did a good job as to getting his point across about the struggles of being in   an internment camps. So I would recommend this book for other people who want to learn about the background history of internment camps, Japanese Internment Camps, and its aftermath.
