Barnes and Noble:

I thought that this book was vary well written. Also I thought that it was sad because when it said that it took all the Japaneses people to a camp to live in during the war I thought that was wrong because they had done nothing wrong when they were living in the U.S. Overall this book was a well written book with great details and the dairy entries were vary well placed as far as the story gos. When I was reading this book I was at school and when I was reading it many times I would have to put the book down to do my school work. Most of the time I thought of how the sad the people must have been vary sad but the book once gain was vary good.
