1 journaler for this copy...
All of my great-grandparents were from Japan. As a result of December 7, 1941, my father lost the home he was living in and my maternal great-grandfather was eventually sent to an internment camp. Mom remembers that her Hawaii-born father went to help clean up the damage at Pearl Harbor and didn't come home for a couple of days..but he never talked to her about what he saw. So I definitely have an interest in this subject. This book is set in Hawaii, told from a Japanese-American perspective, and written by an author who grew up here, so I think it gives a fairly good idea of what it was like to be in Tomi's shoes.

Yay for indie films!
Fiercely independent, with a loving heart and a wicked sense of humor, she was passionate about the things she believed in and was willing to stand up and be counted when necessary. She was truly a one of a kind individual, and she will be missed by all of her many friends...who prefer to believe that she's off in Vegas, having a fabulous time and eating as many desserts as she wants.
