"Against the authentic background of campus life, Florence Crannell Means writes with deep understanding and discernment the story of an attractive and vivacious African American girl who emerges from her freshman year at university to reach for a star."

A gripping tale of Japanese-Americans forced to leave their lives and their homes, sent to internment camps after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor. While most are discouraged about their current situation, some exhibit perseverance and hope for the future.

The plot is handled skillfully, never becoming melodramatic, always keeping the characters fresh and real.

Follows the story of a Japanese-American family who are forced to move into a detention camp during WWII.
Not a terrible treatment of the subject, but the insistent patriotism of the main characters, despite all they go through, is a little grating and rings a little false.

This was one of my favourite books when I was younger... A position I'm afraid it can no longer hold. It was very obvious in this read-through that I enjoyed it for nostalgia's sake only, and would probably have found it somewhat boring without those rosy glasses.

Apart from Emmy, the characters all seem rather 2-dimensional, and even Emmy could be accused of having Mary Sue-like qualities. The plot is sweet and simple, but somewhat rushed and unrealistic in places.

It's always such a shame when childhood favourites don't pass the test of time.… (mais)
