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.
