This was such a lovely read. It’s an historical fiction novel and the story of friendship that extends 6 decades. Two young girls meet at an interment camp in the US, one of German descent and one of Japanese descent. That sounds terrible enough but then they both wind up being “repatriated” to the countries of their parents origins. Both of these girls are American citizens, both 14, sent to where their parents came from many years after they came to America. They struggle and find new lives all the while searching to reconnect with each other to finish the childish book they started as teens. Poignant page turner. Would definitely recommend this.
