This book has only been out for a week and DANG has it taken the world by storm. Highly reviewed from several publishers, so I won't gush too much, but this is such a powerful story and so necessary. I know publication dates are decided well in advance, but this book hit the shelves just as America was talking about our border camps being another incarnation of the Japanese internment camps. PERFECT TIMING!
This book is essential for your library shelves. It's also a great idea to find someone at your school willing to teach it. I know Titlewave has this book listed as AD, but honestly, I don't know why. Any class that touches Japanese Internment or WW2 could use this as supplemental literature.
