Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—It's 1942, and in the wake of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, California teenagers Evalina Cassano and Taichi Hamisaki fight for their right to love each other. Evalina is the daughter of Italian parents who own an Italian restaurant, and Taichi is the son of Japanese parents who provide the produce for the Cassanos' restaurant. Evalina and Taichi vow to love each other and never give up. However, as Taichi settles into life at Manzanar Relocation Center, in the shadow of Mt. Whitney, and Evalina prepares for her first year at Berkeley, the obstacles become more than they can handle. Japanese is peppered throughout, and the author's extensive research helps to create a rich and engaging atmosphere that will transport readers. Both Evalina and Taichi develop as their stories unfold, and readers get to see them mature and grow as their circumstances evolve. VERDICT A solid pick for anyone who enjoys historical fiction or romantic tales of love, loss, and reunion. Recommended for general purchase.—Maryjean Bakaletz, Morris County Library, Whippany, NJ --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

A frightening portrait of how suspicion and fear of Japanese Americans during World War II led to the incarceration of thousands at Manzanar and other camps. Precise in its history, intimate in detail, Stephanie Morrill's sensitively written novel brings to life a shameful era of American injustice, one that echoes events in the present day. -- Janet Taylor Lisle, ALA notable author of Scott O'Dell Award winner The Art of Keeping Cool and Newbery Honor book Afternoon of the Elves ― Janet Taylor Lisle, ALA notable author of Scott O'Dell Award winner The Art of Keeping Cool and Newbery Honor book Afternoon of the Elves

A thoughtful and moving story of forbidden love under the dual pressures of wartime and of intolerance, Within These Lines grabs you with its mix of fascinating historical fact and heart-melting fiction. Stephanie Morrill keeps you hoping against hope right up to the very last page. -- Caroline Leech, author of Wait for Me and In Another Time ― Caroline Leech, author of Wait for Me and In Another Time

Within These Lines will steal your breath, your heart, and your thoughts for days after you've finished. An always-timely look at prejudice and the importance of taking action combines with a tale of deepest love and self-sacrifice. Flawless and beautiful. -- Roseanna M. White, bestselling author of the Ladies of the Manor and Shadows Over England series ― Roseanna M. White, bestselling author of the Ladies of the Manor and Shadows Over England series

Poignant and evocatively relevant, Within These Lines is a tale of star-crossed love and heartrending discrimination with characters that leap off the page and challenge us to stand against the injustice in our own time. A gripping read! -- Lorie Langdon, author of Olivia Twist and the Doon series ― Lorie Langdon, author of Olivia Twist and the Doon series

Within These Lines will both break your heart and awaken it. Evalina and Taichi's story not only navigates a precarious romance, but it challenges racism, injustice, and the temptation to stay silent. Their boldness and call to action will stick with you long after you turn the last page. I applaud Morrill's storytelling and cannot recommend this book enough--a must-read for all historical fiction fans! -- Nadine Brandes, author of Fawkes ― Nadine Brandes, author of Fawkes

Within These Lines is a moving story of love, hope, and family set against the dark history of Japanese internment in America. This book had me captivated! -- Maureen McQuerry, YALSA award-winning author of The Peculiars and the upcoming Between Before and After ― Maureen McQuerry, YALSA award-winning author of The Peculiars and the upcoming Between Before and After

Thought provoking and timely, Within These Lines highlights a dark period in history. Through compelling characters, we see the injustice and feel the fears and doubts and dilemmas. But mostly, we see the shimmering ribbon of hope through Evalina and Taichi's unrelenting love. Stephanie Morrill has written a novel to ponder, a novel to cherish. -- Sarah Sundin, bestselling and award-winning author of The Sea Before Us and The Sky Above Us ― Sarah Sundin, bestselling and award-winning author of The Sea Before Us and The Sky Above Us

Heartrending and timely, Evalina and Taichi's story leaps off the page. Morrill deftly weaves history and fiction together, shining a light on the realities of America's World War II-era home front through the eyes of her fiery and steadfast protagonists. From start to satisfying finish, historical fiction readers won't want to miss Morrill's latest. -- Hillary Manton Lodge, author of A Table by the Window ― Hillary Manton Lodge, author of A Table by the Window

In fiercely beautiful prose, Stephanie Morrill delivers a timely new novel that sheds much-needed light on racial conflict and trauma experienced on the home front during World War II. An evocative, impeccably researched story of love, loss, longing, and the necessary hard work of reconciliation, Within These Lines offers characters who will inspire readers long into the future. Historical fiction fans, this is a must-read for 2019. -- Karen Halvorsen Schreck, author of Broken Ground ― Karen Halvorsen Schreck, author of Broken Ground
