"This book is dedicated to all the nearly 120,000 Americans of Japanese descent who were incarcerated in the ten War Relocation Camps during World War II, but especially to those in Minidoka."

Book descriptionEdit

"My name is Piper. This is my story....
One fateful day in December 1941, Piper Davis awaits news of her brother, a soldier on the battleship
Arizona stationed in Pearl Harbor. Explosions rule the earth and sky, and Piper wonders what will become of her brother, and of her life in Seattle, as rationing and blackouts take hold. Soon, Piper is greeted by another grim reality—the incarceration of her Japanese neighbors. Piper's father, a pastor for a Japanese Baptist church, decides to follow his congregants when they are sent to an incarceration campy, bringing Piper along with him. She resents being uprooted, but as she learns about the harsh and heartbreaking realities of war, Piper begins to understand that she has the power to make a difference."
