Read in November, 2009

This story takes place between 1942 and 1986. It is the story of a Chinese American turning thirteen and him again as an adult seeming to be looking for his place in life.

Although fiction, historic fiction of life following the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The story introduced the reality of internment camps during WWII. I haven't explorered this part of American history beyond not understanding how this was done to fellow Americans and why only those of Japanese ancestory.

I felt the story had a slow beginning but suddenlyI came to care about Henry Lee.
