Gr. 4-6. Pining for her old home in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, Cassie feels like an outsider in California, but she finds a friend in Miko Yashimoto. She's in Miko's home when they hear of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Soon Miko and her family must leave for an internment camp, where they live until the war ends. Cassie then befriends Maria Garcia, a Mexican girl, whose family has experienced discrimination of a different sort, ranging from rudeness to violence. Cassie's mother goes to work in a factory when her bigoted father is drafted, and, late in the story, a telegram informs them that he was killed in Italy. The novel flicks through the time period like a skipping stone across the surface of water, hitting the high spots and leaving a great deal undeveloped. Although the book is simply too short to handle so much plot or to develop all its themes, many of the scenes have an emotional honesty that readers will find refreshing. A possible addition to collections seeking short historical fiction. Carolyn Phelan
