Listener Opinions

    " This book isn't really that bad, but this book is not really that good. It doesn' really feel as if it was real. It felt...faked and rushed. This book is allright, but the "power" isn't really there. Still, other people might enjoy it. So, be wary. ? "

    " Great read-a-loud. Based on true-life characters. Strong female character. Multi-generational crowd pleaser, especially if great-grandma was a rosie the riveter. "

    " Wow! I really, really like this book. It gives such a different perspective of WWII. A few things are like, you are so silly Piper, but most of it is awesome. Love all the extras at the back! "

    " I wondered if the diary format would be limiting here, but Kirby Larson does a fine job of bringing the characters and the time period to life. "

    " This is an excellent example of historical fiction. The characters and story line are true to the time period and are completely engaging. Piper Davis and her family witness first hand the Japanese internment camps during World War II. "
