    During World War II, a family's life is turned upside down when the government opens a Japanese internment camp in their small Colorado town. After a young girl is murdered, all eyes (and suspicions) turn to the newcomers, the "interlopers", the "strangers". Rennie Stroud has never seen it before. She has just turned 13 and, until this time, life has pretty much been what her father told her it should be: predictable and fair.

    Laurie says: "A nice read"
    "Little gem"
    Overall

    The story enfolds from the perspective of a 13 year-old girl who lives next to a Japanese internment camp during WWII in Colorado. The small farming community reacts to racism, murder, abuse, rape and adultery and little Rennie is forced to grow up very quickly. It is interesting to see the main character’s own prejudices change as her eyes open to what is really going on in the town and as she sees the affects of war close to home. I would recommend this book, it seemed to capture this era perfectly in language and tone and the narrator was fantastic.
