Before World War II, Japanese Americans on the West Coast worked hard adapting to American life while creating tight-knit communities. However, after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, sending 120,000 Americans of Japanese descent into internment camps. They were forced to live in barracks surrounded by barbed wire and watchtowers. Readers follow Deborah Kent as she details the sad history of these camps, the reasons behind their creation, and how the internees made the best of their deplorable situation, and finally received an official apology from the U.S. Government.
