I found this book to be OK. It really only had a few chapters relating to the internment in Manzanar--it was mainly about what happened before and after they got out of the camp. Would have liked to see pictures of her family so I could put a face with a name. Don't use this book if you are doing research into the camps but it was a good read about Japanese culture.
