Read full description of the books:I am American. We are all Americans.
The year is 1942. A Japanese-American girl’s life is turned upside down by Executive Order 9066, and she must cope with a life confined to the barbed wire of an internment camp in the Arizona desert. There, she struggles to weigh her continued loyalty to her country (which has betrayed and ostracized everyone she loves) against a closely guarded family secret that could change the course of history.
This taut and affecting story is by Erin Hoffman, a San Francisco-based video game designer whose Chaos Knight fantasy series—starting with last year’s Sword of Fire and Sea and continuing with the recently released Lance of Earth and Sky—is being published by Pyr Books.
