I would highly recommend this to educators as required reading for seventh and eighth grade students. It provideds a context to understanding history through personal experience and should encourage students to relate their own family histories. Kimi Cunningham Grant's style is subtle and affecting. Her book brings out the many dimensions of our country's continued struggle for civil rights.

"Of course, I was oblivious to the fact that in all my efforts to be un-Japanese, I was joining that same old--and very Japanese--narrative of haji, or shame, that my mother had been participating in when she'd whispered her secret about my grandparents. The same one that had kept my family silent about those years in a Wyoming prison camp."
--Kimi Cunningham Grant
