The book tells two stories alternatively: one of a delinquent adolescent who newly moves to a suburb and ends up spending a night in jail when he gets caught stealing. Another of a Japanese American boy forced to move to the relocation camp after Pearl Harbor. Slowly, as the story unfolds, the two stories meet up.

It's a beautiful and poignant tale. The sumie style for the Japanese tangent really evolves the loneliness and sparseness of the camp. However, without any words, it's also at times difficult to actually understand what happens, and it feels that some narrative detail is sacrificed using this style of storytelling. However, I've read a few stories about this slice of history so I get some idea what happens.

This was very interesting premise wise. The two stories alternating back and forth move the reader from WWII era California to a modern day suburb of Chicago. I really liked how the two stories merge as the story unfolded. The artwork for this book was amazing. But like Azuki, I wish that there had been dialog included for the storyline set during WWII. The wordless style of storytelling was poignant, but a little bit of dialog would have made events a bit easier to follow.

I really enjoyed this little book Azuki. Thank you so much for including it in my manga book box.

Picked this up in the Far East bookbox...will read and then give to a friend's son, who loves graphic novels. I've heard of this one, and am looking forward to it.
