This series presents exciting historical novels that show the diversity and strength of our American culture. Each volume concludes with a short "Historical Postscript" that tells more about the real people depicted in the story, provides valuable background information on the era described, and lists other books on the subject suitable for young readers. Each book is reviewed for accuracy by a historical expert.

Jeannie Bosold and Amy Mochida, a Japanese American, are best friends. Together, they love going to the movies and talking about movie stars. But when Pearl Harbor is attacked they face the adult reality of racism. Amy's family is shunned and sent away from their home in southern California.
