One year after Pearl Harbor, 13-year-old Japanese-American Tomi Nakaji's life has been drastically changed. Father and Grandfather have been arrested without cause. The family fishing boat has been sunk, and people look with suspicion on everything Japanese. Graham Salisbury's riveting story brings a traumatic time to life. Jeff Woodman fleshes out the story, giving each character his own unique voice. Listeners identify with Tomi as he deals with prejudice and cheer his victories as he faces down a bully and develops a plan to salvage the family boat. This is historical fiction at its best, bringing an era to life and showing us that human nature isn't bound by time, place, or nationality.
