Publisher's Summary

New from Newbery Honor author Kirby Larson, the moving story of a Japanese American girl who is separated from her dog upon being sent to an incarceration camp during WWII. Although Mitsi Kashino and her family are swept up in the wave of anti-Japanese sentiment following the attack on Pearl Harbor, Mitsi never expects to lose her home - or her beloved dog, Dash. But, as World War II rages and people of Japanese descent are forced into incarceration camps, Mitsi is separated from Dash, her classmates, and life as she knows it. The camp is a crowded and unfamiliar place, whose dusty floors, seemingly endless lines, and barbed wire fences begin to unravel the strong Kashino family ties.

With the help of a friendly neighbor back home, Mitsi remains connected to Dash in spite of the hard times, holding on to the hope that the war will end soon and life will return to normal. Though they've lost their home, will the Kashino family also lose their sense of family? And will Mitsi and Dash ever be reunited?

DASH is an amazing book! It is better with Audible. It is great that they say it is a true story at the end,so you don't have emotions.

We live Dash!

Originally we bought this just because our dog is named Dash. It turned out to be a fantastic story about a Japanese family in the US after Pearl Harbor, a perspective that doesn't get much attention. My 8 and 10 year olds loved it- a great mix of history and family stories.
