Part of the Girls Survive series.

This book follows the story of Alice, a thirteen year old Japanese American girl, living in Hawaii during Pearl Harbor. This book is filled with historical facts, definitions, as well as life lessons. Would recommend this to everyone and anyone, particularly young girls. The story of resilience is one that needs to be told over and over again.
