Descriere

New from Newbery Honor author Kirby Larson, the moving story of a Japanese American girl who is separated from her dog upon being sent to an incarceration camp during WWII.

Although Mitsi Kashino and her family are swept up in the wave of anti-Japanese sentiment following the attack on Pearl Harbor, Mitsi never expects to lose her home--or her beloved dog, Dash. But, as World War II rages and people of Japanese descent are forced into incarceration camps, Mitsi is separated from Dash, her classmates, and life as she knows it. The camp is a crowded and unfamiliar place, whose dusty floors, seemingly endless lines, and barbed wire fences begin to unravel the strong Kashino family ties. With the help of a friendly neighbor back home, Mitsi remains connected to Dash in spite of the hard times, holding on to the hope that the war will end soon and life will return to normal. Though they've lost their home, will the Kashino family also lose their sense of family? And will Mitsi and Dash ever be reunited?

  • (4/5)
    Compelling historical fiction that captures the many impacts of the Japanese internment through the eyes of 5th grader Mitsi Kashino. This child-centered introduction to an ugly part of American history will stir young readers' compassion and sense of the injustices suffered. A great book all around!
  • (5/5)
    Pretty sweet and, at times, heartbreaking story about a Japanese American girl living in Washington state while Pearl Harbor gets bombed. The book explores how friendships change, her family changes as they are sent to camps, and the relationship between a twelve year old girl and her dog, Dash. Loved it!

    Mitsi's life in America is completely turned upside down after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. One day, she was in school and life was normal; the next, all people of Japanese descent were perceived as a potential threat. With just a week's notice, Mitsi and her family had to pack up their belongings, leave their home, and report to Camp Harmony. The major problem is that she can't take her beloved dog, Dash. In this heart wrenching portrait of just what Japanese and Japanese Americans faced, young readers are introduced to harsh realities of injustice in America's past. Link with Baseball Saved Us (although baseball doesn't really play a role in the book), with Dear Miss Breed, and look for primary documents on the Library of Congress website that will further bring this era to life.There are a few phrases that I noted in the book that I questioned the authenticity of language for 1941: "back at you" was one. (Thatt's more 2014 than 1941). "kibble-sized bits" another. (I couldn't resist looking up when kibbles came into being, and it seems it was 1981. Not that these inauthentic phrases mar the book - but one wonders why an editor or author/ researcher like Larson, so meticulous in so many ways, wouldn't catch this as a bit anacronistic.

    Set after Pearl Harbor, this book follows Mitsi and her family as they are forced to leave their home and stay in an internment camp. In the camp, Mitski recieves letters from her dog, Dash. These letters serve as a symbol of hope for the entire camp. The book does a great job at mentioning the issues children face on a day to day basis, such as bullying, while also mentioning serious issues such as racism.

    Mitsi and her family are taken away and placed into an camp and she is not allowed to bring her dog, which happens to be her bestfriend. I think this story does a really good job depicting current events that actually happened during that time period, while also being accurate. It shows the impact the Pearl Harbor had on families and what there life like was before that event occurred. It was a sweet story with a happy ending, about a girl and her dog.
