Citizen 13559 Mirror Lake Internment Camp, California 1942.
Tues. April 21, 1942. I never thought I looked different from the other kids. Never once, even thought most of them are Caucasian, except for Billy Smith, who's a Negro, and Charles Hamada, who's part Japanese, part jerk. But I realized my face was different. My hair was black. My skin was yellow. My eyes were narrow. It never seemed to matter before, but it sure did matter now. Now my face was the face of the enemy.

An excellent way to learn about what happened in the US during World War II. I didn't know much about the camps until I read the journal. It's amazing what fear and misunderstanding can cause to happen. Definitely a worthwhile read. I highly recommend this book. I learned so much from reading it.
