Description
One fateful day in December 1941, Piper Davis awaits news of her brother, a soldier on the battleship Arizona stationed in Pearl Harbor. As explosions rule the earth and sky, Piper wonders what will become of her brother-and of her life in Seattle as rationing and blackouts take hold. Soon Piper is greeted by another grim reality-the internment of her Japanese American neighbors.

Piper's father, a pastor for a Japanese Baptist church, decides to follow his congregants when they are sent to an internment camp, bringing Piper along with him. She resents being uprooted, but as World War II rages, she learns about the harsh and heartbreaking realities of war, and begins to understand what it means to be a good citizen and a strong person.
