Recommended for: middle school teachers, middle school readers
Read in August, 2008

I reviewed this book in its ARC format, but I was caught up in the story by Laurence Yep, an author with a wide variety of medals I agree with the target audience of 5th - 9th graders, and the discrimination experienced during Pre-WWII days by Chinese Americans is eye-opening to today's middle schooler. I learned, too, that even this discrimination paled in comparison to what was experienced by black Americans during this period.

I highly recommend it to a maturing class of middle schoolers whose teacher may be needing to substitute a new title for one of the older classics.
