WeedflowerTwelve year old Sumiko feels her life has been made up of two parts before Pearl Harbor and after it The good part and the bad part Raised on a flower farm in California Sumiko is used to being the only Japanese girl in her class Even when the other kids tease her she always has had her flowers and family to go home to That all changes after the horrific events of Pearl Harbor Other Americans start to suspect that all Japanese people are spies for the emperor even if like Sumiko they were born in the Unite. Most kids don’t even realize that when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor we treated all Japanese like outcasts We took them from their homes and put them in “camps” so that they would no longer be a part of American society In some cases we were not much better than the Germans because we treated them horribly simply because they were a different race This book is interesting to use to find out about what conditions these people lived in Not a ton of action but a lot of information and a pretty decent storyline to tell the events of this girl’s life Summary The excitement 12 year old Sumiko feels when she's invited to her first birthday party is replaced by hurt and confusion when the door is closed in her face after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor The family is soon removed from their California flower farm and interred on a desert reservation in Arizona where the Indians resent the intruders
