Thin Wood Walls is a historical fiction book that tells the story of the Japanese American Hanada family and their experiences in the Mountain West during World War II This is a piece of American history that many teens and young adults know nothing about During World War II America overreacted after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor President Roosevelt ordered thousands of Japanese Americans into prison camps by Executive Order It is an ugly piece of American history Families were ripped apart and pulled from the communities they were a part of The main character and narrator of the story is Joe Hanada I really enjoyed seeing the events through his eyes You really have a lot of empathy for Joe and the family as the events of the story unfoldOne of the things that I was really surprised by in the story was how the Joe's father is taken from the family very early in the story and sent to a separate prison camp for years I had always assumed that families were just moved from their homes I never realized that families were broken up like this This really hit home as a father I could not imagine how angry I would be if this had been me and my family I think Patneaude did an incredible job on this book This is a must read historical fiction book for young readers

Thin Wood WallsEleven year old Joe Hanada likes playing basketball with his best friend Ray writing plays and stories and thinking about the upcoming Christmas holiday But his world falls apart when Japanese planes bomb Pearl Harbor His country goes to war The FBI takes his father away And neighbors and friends in his hometown near Seatt. I'm not going to lie I shed a tear at the end of this book I cried at the obvious part but I also cried at the last sentence in the author's notes maybe it's because I was emotional already But the author was talking about how Japanese American soldiers efforts in the war had been downplayed and that in 1996 congress had reuested a review of service records They found many solders many who were already dead that deserved honor and awarded them the Medal of Honor And here is the sentence that got me The award ceremony took place in Washington DC on June 21 2000 fifty five years after the war ended UGHSo this book is about one Japanese American family's journey through life during WWII the prejudice they faced the internment camp they were relocated to It's all sad and the author does a really good job of making extremely relate able characters I felt their pain I also enjoyed that he wrote about this subject The Japanese Internment Camps I feel are America's dirty little secret Everyone is horrified about how the Nazis could have done such horrible things to the Jewish people But we were treating our own citizens in such a similar manner Boo America Boo
