Narrators Allison Hiroto and Christie Moreau bring pathos to their portrayals of Margot and Toshiko. This novel is an account of two girls who meet in Crystal City, Texas, an internment camp for families suspected of collusion with the Japanese in 1944. Hiroto and Moreau project the emotions of the girls as they form a friendship that transcends the feelings of the adults in the camp. The narrators also capture their families as Toshiko's family worries about her brother, who is in the war, and Margot's family begins to turn against the country that has put them behind barbed wire. Listeners will enjoy the author's note about her research and the inspiration for this title. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
