This compelling, heartfelt book is a very quick read that manages to cover a lot of profound topics, including racism, courage, loyalty, and love. It's a great first-hand account of a point in American history that isn't written about much, especially for teen audiences. Through a series of flash-forwards, the author does a great job of showing how the events of the 1940's mirror what happened to certain communities during the "Muslim ban" of recent years. This story does a great job of demonstrating why what happened can never be allowed to happen again.
