When the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor, Hawaii-born Tomikazu's world is turned upside down. Suddenly, he looks like the enemy, and his father and grandfather are arrested. It's a scary time, but Tomi learns that he can count on his friends.

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.

They're making a movie: filming started this month; lots of local actors, techs, etc.

Yay for indie films!

Journal Entry 4 by winghyphen8wing at Honolulu, Hawaii USA on Wednesday, October 19, 2016
This book was found in the library of Purple58, a very special woman whom I was fortunate enough to meet through our BookCrossing group, the Table of Contents.

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.

If you have something to say about the book, or a memory to share about Holly, please feel free to post it here: she was never shy about sharing her opinions, so she wouldn't expect any less.
