In 1941, Frank meets Kenji, a Japanese-American boy who lives in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, where Frank and his family have just moved. But then the unthinkable happens--Pearl Harbor is bombed by the Japanese. Can Frank and Kenji still be friends? A good springboard for thoughts and discussion of perennial, increasingly visible issues.--Kirkus Reviews.

About the Author:

Kathleen Kudlinksi the award-winning author of more than forty books for children, including  the Boy, Were We Wrong series. She lives in Connecticut and Vermont.

From Kirkus Reviews:

In a brief historical episode, two fifth-graders (one of them a Japanese-American) witness the bombing of Pearl Harbor and its immediate aftermath. Though unhappy in his new Hawaiian home, Frank makes an instant friend in Kenji Imoto, the landlord's son; the two talk baseball, and, after watching the attack, Frank is invited to spend the night in the Imotos' traditional household. Plot and character take a backseat here to expressions of racial tension: Frank is hazed by schoolmates as a ``haoli'' (white); he encounters anti-Asian prejudice in his mother; he's disoriented by the Imotos' social customs and sees them arguing about whether to conceal their heritage. Frank also reflects very little on his experiences, with the spare narrative virtually free of background or analysis; the author does mention in an afterword that internment camps appeared on the mainland but not in Hawaii, where suspicion seldom reached as high a pitch. A good springboard for thought and discussion of perennial, increasingly visible issues. Himler provides several full-page soft pencil drawings. (Fiction. 10-13) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
