Set against the backdrop of World War II, Italian-American Evalina, and the son of Japanese immigrants, Taichi, are never supposed to be together. In fact, such a marriage would be deemed illegal in California at the time. Yet they are in love and determined to eventually get married. Then comes Pearl Harbor, and Taichi and his family are evacuated to an internment camp. This is a period in American history that is not represented much in fiction, and Morrill shows the nitty-gritty of this sad time. Perfect for fans of Ruta Septys, Monica Hesse and Elizabeth Wein.
