Read full review: http://bit.ly/1bxoKp63.5/5 StarsMy opinion: For being a middle school/early high school targeted book, I felt that it contained excellent content and very incredibly detail oriented for the number of pages. I have read NUMEROUS books on this topic, but I still felt that I learned a lot walking away from this book of more personalized accounts that have not been included in adult non-fiction literature I have read on this subject. I absolutely loved the pictures in this book. They are the best I have seen. As to my criticisms of the book, I did feel that the author gave way too big of a pass to FDR on the issue of internment and instead blamed congress and the military. Second, I felt the author tried to make this a race issue versus the cultural issue that it was. It appeared as though the author had an agenda coming into this book.Although I think it is an important read for your pre-teen back it up with other books on this subject.
