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?
