Winner of the Scott O’Dell Award for Historical Fiction and the California Young Reader Medal, Graham Salisbury injects his books with the exotic color of his native Hawaii.
Continuing the story begun in Under the Blood-Red Sun, House of the Red Fish returns to Honolulu one year after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Thirteen-year-old Japanese American Tomi Nakaji must struggle to support his family after the arrest of his father and grandfather.

"It is not necessary to have read the first book, as the author seamlessly brings his audience up to date. Give this to readers who enjoyed Rodman Philbrick's The Young Man and the Sea, another story with an ocean setting and a fiercely determined boy's coming of age." (School Library Journal)
"Many readers, even those who don't enjoy historical fiction, will like the portrayal of the work and the male camaraderie." (Booklist)
