Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hawaii, December 7, 1941. Tomikazu's world is destroyed when Pearl Harbor is attacked by the Japanese. Tomi's father and grandfather — both born in Japan — are arrested, and Tomi must help his mother and sister survive. It's a terrifying time to be Japanese American.

Review:

"Salisbury skillfully describes Tomi's emotional highs and lows, and has a particular knack for realistically portraying the camaraderie and dialogue between boyhood chums." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Salisbury spares few details — the fear, the horror, the sounds, the smells all envelop the reader as they do the characters....[An] action-packed novel..." Frances Bradburn, Booklist (Starred Review)

Review:

"Character development of major figures is good, the setting is warmly realized, and the pace of the story moves gently though inexorably forward." School Library Journal

Review:

"Salisbury's second novel is not only a timeless tale of the loyalty of friends, but it also explores both cross-generational and cross-cultural issues. An easy read...[that] is nevertheless challenging in its content and subject matter." Lisa J. McClure, The ALAN Review

Review:

"Outstanding." VOYA

Synopsis:

Tomikazu Nakaji's biggest concerns are baseball, homework, and a local bully, until life with his Japanese family in Hawaii changes drastically after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941.
